Camping Troop Program Feature for Boy Scouts

The Boy Scout Roundtable Planning Guide suggests a Camping troop program feature for Boy Scouts for April 2012. BSA provides the troop program feature guides as a resource for Boy Scout troops. A PLC can use these guides to plan a series of meetings and outings around a single theme. My post Troop Program Features for Meetings and Outings has  more information about these guides.

The plans for the Camping troop program feature can be found in  Volume 1  of Troop Program Features from BSA:

Nowhere is the romance of the BSA more evident than in camp. Whether it’s an overnight campout or a week
at summer camp, an outdoor setting promises fun and adventure—two of Scouting’s great attractions.

The focus of this program feature is on outdoor skills. Younger Scouts will work on cooking and camping requirements, along with a few other requirements. Experienced Scouts will work on Camping merit badge. They can also work on Cooking, Hiking, Orienteering, Pioneering, Wilderness Survival, and other nature related merit badges.

The big feature for the program theme is a campout where Scouts can practice their outdoor skills.
