Acadia National Park
Troop 727 will be embarking on our next big destination adventure in the summer of 2020! The destination is Acadia National Park in Maine, with a stop at Niagara Falls on the way. The trip is in the initial stages of being organized, and once dates have been decided more information will be provided.
There will be an open enrollment period in which Scouts who are interested may sign up and put in a deposit. At the end of the enrollment period we will move to a wait list system that will be determined. Scouts interested in going will have to be First Class at least two weeks prior to the dates of the trip. Scouts who crossover in 2020 will not be eligible to participate in this trip, but we will have plenty more adventures for them in the future!
Destination: Acadia National Park, Niagara Falls State Park
Dates: Summer 2020 (Exact dates TBD)
States: Route TBD but definitely Maine & New York
Acadia National Park is an American national park located in the state of Maine, southwest of Bar Harbor. The park preserves about half of Mount Desert Island, many adjacent smaller islands, and part of the Schoodic Peninsula on the coast of Maine. Acadia was initially designated Sieur de Monts National Monument by proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson in 1916. Sieur de Monts was renamed and redesignated Lafayette National Park by Congress in 1919—the first national park in the United States east of the Mississippi River and the only one in the Northeastern United States. The park was renamed Acadia National Park in 1929.
