Capitol tour


Join Troop 286 for a tour of New York State’s Capitol RegionNovember 9 to 11(departing Nov 8).
The trip will include a walking tour of downtown Albany to see the New York State government’s buildings, and more. The walking tour will include a stop at the New York State Museum.
The trip will include a hike through the Historic Saratoga Battlefield, where in 1777 one of the pivotal battles of the American Revolution took place and where the leadership of a wounded Benedict Arnold provided the difference for an American victory earning him the title of the Hero of Saratoga.
Finally we will visit Howe Caverns, where we will descend 156 feet below the Earth’s surface into a six million year old cavern, carved by a subterranean river that continues to sculpt the cave today. We can see countless layers of sedimentary limestone, the floor of an ancient sea, and navigate the 500 foot serpentine passage known as the Winding Way, one of the world’s best examples of underground water erosion.
Yours in Scouting.
