Camping Troop Program Feature

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.

A troop that camps out almost every month of the year will have a strong appeal to Scouts. On the other hand, a troop that rarely gets outdoors might have trouble holding the interest of boys.

The big event of the month will be a campout that encourages Scouts to improve their camping skills. The campout might have another emphasis, too – perhaps nature study, astronomy, conservation, fishing, or wilderness survival.
