Is Sayre the best place for Freedom Trail?

Recommended Posts

Go Sox!


As cubs we took the boys to "Ironsides" and the Aquarium and stayed at Camp Sayre.


The staff was friendly and everything went well.


Thinking about next May going to do the Freedom Trail with the Troop.

Is Sayre the closest and cheapest place to sleep outside?

Sayre is probably the closest and most convienient scout property to the Boston area. It is not far from public transportation, is open all year and has good facilities, including adirondack type shelters if you want. They just built a new indoor olympic sized pool, but last I heard the pool was having problems and had to close for a while.


Another alternative for camping close to Boston, with good access to public transportation, is Wompatuck State Park, in Hingham, MA. http://www.mass.gov/dcr/parks/southeast/womp.htm

Camping is available all year and there is a separate area set aside for scout units.

From here you can access commuter rail or ferry boat service to downtown Boston.


If your really ambitious and want to try something different there is camping on the Boston Harbor Islands with ferry service to/from Boston. I think they are open for camping only on a seasonal basis though. See http://www.mass.gov/dcr/parks/metroboston/harbor.htm


Good luck,


And for now it's GO PATS! At least until spring training.


Just realized this initial question was posted last spring! Sorry for the delayed reply.
