Some of you may view this walk as a bit of a gimmick, but we would rather call it a "themed" hike with a purpose in the woods of Vermont.
Since Clint Buxton’s early days in Scouting, our Camp Director has always wanted to hike the Long Trail End-to-End. When the pandemic shuttered our summer camps and rendered Clint ‘unemployed,’ he decided to hit the trail and chase his dream. On August 29th, Clint ‘Hawkeye’ Buxton will begin his 272 mile quest north and hoping to average 10 miles a day for 27 days.
Scouting calls us to help other people at all times and Clint remains hopeful his trek will help raise awareness and much-needed support for Vermont’s Outdoor Scouting Programs.
Clint has pledged to donate $2 per mile to help alleviate a $160,000 camp operating deficit as he hikes from Massachusetts to the Canadian Border. Join the adventure this fall as a Buxton Trail Champion by pledging your support for outdoor programs, taking part in a service weekend or hitting a trail and posting an adventure with a 'Flat Buxton' cutout to social media using #BuxtonHikesLT
