Camping: Trek NYC

Trek NYC is an exciting program offered year-round to Scout units. Travel through the “Greatest City in the World” over the course of 3-5 days and visit the most famous places and sights, while spending nights at Alpine Scout Camp just 15 minutes outside of Manhattan. We will work with you to customize your trek based on your preferences as you choose your own adventures for each day of your trek.
