FULFILL THE PROMISE
Youth join a unit because Scouting provides the excitement and adventure of camping in the great outdoors. They want to share that excitement
The key to fulfillment is in the hands of Scouters to unlock the door to adventure so that one day they will say: “It was all that I hoped for and more!”.
Outdoor adventure is the promise made to Scouts who yearn for outdoor programs that stir their imagination and interest.
Organized camping is a creative, educational experience in cooperative group living in the outdoors. It uses the natural surroundings to contribute significantly to physical, mental, spiritual, and social growth.
- Camping contributes to good health.
- Camping helps campers develop self-reliance and resourcefulness.
- Camping enhances spiritual growth.
- Camping contributes to social development.
- Camping is an experience in citizenship training.
- Camping at the Cub Scout level introduces boys to the knowledge and skills that they will learn and apply more thoroughly as a Boy Scout.
Cub Scouting offers camping opportunities for Cub Scouts through day camps, resident camps, Webelos den overnight campouts, council-organized family camps, and pack overnighters.
Here is the latest “Where to Go Camping Guide”, an annual publication by the Order of the Arrow lodge, and a resource for everything related to camping, including high adventure, council camps, camping policies, camping awards, places to go camping and other resources for units to use to plan their next adventure.
