Camping and Outdoors
The camping and outdoor program is an exciting and essential element of the Boy Scouts of America. Camping and outdoor program activities will deliver adventure, challenge, teamwork opportunities, confidence building, fun, and other new and exciting experiences. Camping and outdoor program activities will lead to self-reliance, self-confidence, and leadership, and will enhance the traditional aims of Scouting: citizenship, character develop- ment, and mental and physical fitness consistent with the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
Safe and successful camping and outdoor activities will entice youth to become members of the Scouting organization and benefit from its values and character-building activities.
