two different options for the course:   July 10-16 OR July 17-23.  That way Scouts can still join their Troop at summer camp.

The NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade

Last month, a couple dozen Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts from around the city got the opportunity to march in the St. Patrick's Day Parade up Fifth Ave.  This was the first time since 2010 that GNYC marched in the iconic parade and  we are excited to announce that our partnership with the parade committee will grow in the years to come. 
If you would like your Scouts to march in the parade next year, or are interested in hearing more information and would like to be contacted as soon as information becomes available, please email  Dave.Swartz@scouting.org.
