From canoeing the mighty Huron River to Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, Troop 8 at St. Thomas Church runs the most amazing year-round outdoor adventure and leadership program in the area.

Alleghenies Backpacking

Again Troop 8 is venturing to the mighty Alleghenie Mountains.  This is our annual 2 day backpacking trip on the Minister Creek Hiking loop in Central Pensylvania.  The Minister Creek Trail is a 7 mile long loop through the heart of the Alleghenie National Forest.  Along this beautiful trail are 4 major rock piles (large piles of boulders, ideal for bouldering and caving) and a scenic overlook over the Minister Creek Valley.  As you hike your patrol will decide which rock piles to stop at for snack breaks and additional fun.
