Scouting is all about the outdoors. While boys appreciate the fun and fellowship of the regular meetings, outdoor activities play a crucial role in keeping boys interested and active in the Scouting program. Every leader should be sure there are plenty of opportunities for boys and their families to experience the “outing” in “Scouting” by including at least one outdoor activity per month.
Scouts BSA Camping
Scouts BSA provides many opportunities for youth ages 11 through 17 to help plan and participate in rugged outdoor adventures. From day hikes to Camporees and summer camp, the troop plans activities that match the interests and abilities of the Scouts. Summer camp blends fun program with advancement requirements to reinforce skills learned throughout the year. Scouts may attend summer camp and learn teamwork within their patrol and troop. Older Scouts may also choose to participate in high-adventure programs such as rock climbing, rappelling, and whitewater rafting.
