for the annual Hammonasset Camping and Fishing Trip. In addition to camping out in a terrific state park
on the Long Island Sound at Madison, Connecticut, you'll have an opportunity to catch fish from the sound in the charter boat, Mijoy

for a blue card and check in with ASM Carlson
, our Fishing Merit Badge counselor.
Plans call for scouts and adults to meet at Jesse Lee around 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 27th to load the cars and head to Hammonassett State Park. At the park, we'll set up camp, relax and get ready for an early morning wake up the next morning. The fishing group will leave Hammonasset at 5:00 a.m. for a 30 minute drive to Waterford, Connecticut for a half day of fishing on the fishing boat. Check out the schedule below.
The cost for this trip is $45/scout and $65/adult. This fee covers the fee for the Mijoy fishing boat, lunch on Saturday and camping. Adults and scouts interested in attending can
