Exploring and Building Leadership in the Outdoors

Troop 49 typically goes camping one weekend out of every month, and always at different destinations, including Enchanted Rock, Krausse Springs, Inks Lake, Flying Armadillo, and a whole lot more. Depending on where we go, we may be hiking, backpacking, swimming, biking, canoeing, fishing, playing disc golf, building towers out of logs and rope...the list goes on.

Practicing canoeing skills

Along the way, scouts learn all sorts of skills, including camping, cooking, first aid, orienteering, pioneering, and a lot more. They also learn important lessons about working as a team.

In the summertime, our scouts have the opportunity to go to week-long summer camps. Older scouts have the opportunity to set out on high adventure expeditions at one of the BSA's high adventure bases.

No matter where we go, every outing brings opportunities for learning teamwork and new skills, and of course, lots of fun in the outdoors.
