Troop 10 Rides And Camps In Montauk


TroopMontauk_041316.ATroop 10 of Great Neck recently spent a weekend in Montauk. The weekend was sunny (but cold on Sunday morning) as 21 Scouts camped out after a day at Deep Hollow Ranch.



On Saturday, Scouts were split into groups for instruction and training on horsemanship. Afterward, each group took an hour-long trail ride.

TroopMontauk_041316.CAfter the ride, they left the ranch and went to a state park to set up camp. Next, they climbed down to the ocean to witness intense landscapes, incredibly diverse rocks and a view of the lighthouse. They climbed back up the bluffs and returned to camp.
