November 10-12, 2017
Troop 205 goes to Indian Island
right at the head of the Peconic Bay!
This 275 acre Indian Island County Park is at the estuarine mouth of the Peconic River – a very popular and picturesque setting. What was formerly the "island" at Indian Island County Park is now connected to the mainland by a causeway composed entirely of white sands. Remote, yet easily accessible to all, this "island", complete with picnic tables, grills, comfortable benches and views of a glistening and peaceful Flanders Bay, offers one of the finest picnicking sites available in Suffolk County. Be sure to bring your bike and helmet for Saturday’s Bike Hike out along the beautiful Peconic Bay! In-camp activities for those not Bike Hiking on Saturday morning, followed by a Troop and Webelos Scouts activity in the afternoon in the camp area.
