Catskill 3500

bigindianAs a troop, we have taken on the challenge of the Catskill Mountain 3500 Club. Our goal is to offer every scout the opportunity to participate in completing the 3500 Club requirements. Although not as impressive on a resume as Eagle Scout, it surely is another indication of a scouts commitment and determination.

The Catskill Mountain 3500 Club, incorporated as the Catskill 3500 Club and often just referred to as the 3500 Club, is a peakbagging organization for hikers in the Catskill Mountains of New York. Those wishing to become members must climb all 35 Catskill High Peaks and, in a departure from the requirements of most other such clubs, climb Slide, Blackhead, Balsam and Panther mountains again in winter, which is defined by the Club’s by-laws as the period from December 21 to March 21 regardless of the actual occurrences of the winter solstice and vernal equinox in particular years. The Club also awards a separate patch for those who go on to climb all 35 peaks during winter.
