Troop Nine has camped all over and is constantly looking for new and exciting places to visit. If you have any suggestions for new camping destinations, do not hesitate in bringing them to the PLC.
There are some locations that we are known to return to every year. This is a list of some of the common places where the troop camps.
Nobscot – 1 Nobscot Road, Sudbury MA
We have a cabin campout at Camp Nobscot every February. Depending on the weather, the campout usually has a lot of outdoor, snow-based activities during the day and movie nights after dark.
Camp Squanto – 200 Cuttersfield Rd, Plymouth, MA 02360
Camp Squanto is home to the Mayflower Council’s summer camp every summer. Troop Nine attends the camp for one week in early July every year, taking part in a wide range of camp activities and merit badges. In the fall, the troop comes back to Camp Squanto to host an overnight campout for Weymouth’s Webelos Cub Scouts.
