Outdoor programs are one of the methods by which Scouting teaches character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Camping is fun and involves problem solving, project management, critical thinking, and team leadership skills. Scouts can participate in a resident camp experience at Camp Karoondinha or day camps held at various locations in our five county service area.
2020 “Not Your Typical Summer Camp”–Camp in a Box
Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s Camp in a Box! We were able to serve 500 scouts and 100 adult leaders through this year’s program. If you are a scout who is still working to complete partial Merit Badges, please work with your Troop leadership to get connected with a local counselor.

Why has the start of Cub Scout Sessions moved to Wednesday?
By starting our Cub Scout Sessions on Wednesday, we are able to provide more time to the staff to develop and implement a high-quality program geared specifically towards Cub Scouts. Additionally, by starting mid-week, we are able to use the weekend as part of our program time. This will result in our leaders not having to use as much PTO or vacation time in order to spend time up at camp with their scouts
