Troop 10 Rock Climbing Trip

On March 1, 1997 the Boy Scouts of America formally recognized "Climbing" as a fun and worthwhile activity by creating the "Climbing" Merit Badge. We are continuing this program. On Thursday March 24, 2005 Troop 10 will be going rock climbing again to the "Mill City Rock Gym" in Dracut MA. Past rock climbing trips have been very well received by the boys and their parents. This is a great opportunity to have the boys safely introduced to the sport of rock climbing.
