What's Up


Once again we are going to the YMCA's retreat facility at Greenkill during the weekend of January 9th.  For those who have yet to go, we stay in a large heated cabin called Kleinstuber on a lake with a full kitchen, fireplace, living room with television and furnished bedrooms.  We will have full access to a large gymnasium with basketball courts, plenty of room for dodgeball and climbing.  Depending on the weather, we will hike, ice skate / sled and / or learn survival skill from a Naturalist.  In the evening the Scouts will cook a meal for all and we will watch the NFL playoffs on television.

This is our only trip where we allow the Scouts to bring electronics to occupy their time in the evening.  It is also the most comfortable trip for the parents as they get their own bedroom with full bathroom.

The cost is $90 per person.  We will leave at 8:30 am on Saturday and arrive back in Manhasset midday on Sunday.
