Activity and Camping Program

ACTIVITY AND CAMPING PROGRAM

Scouting is OUTING and as such, camping is the backbone of Troop 9625's program. Typically, an outdoor activity is conducted monthly. Weekend campouts may be the highlight to a monthly troop theme selected by the Patrol Leaders Council, focus on particular outdoor skills, or are part of a district or council-wide event. Listed below is an example of what a yearly program consists of:

                January:                               Winter Camping

                                                                Ice Fishing Derby

                                                                Beaver Valley

                February:                            Troop Theme Campout

In addition, additional activities such as High Adventure trips for older Scouts (canoe trips, Sea Base, Philmont Scout Ranch, activities for older scouts, etc.), various service projects (including those required for the Eagle Scout Rank) and organized merit badge classes are held. The actual dates for activities are listed on the Troop Website and in the Yearly plan. In addition, details indicating departure and return times, fees, etc., are noted in the Permission Slip, which is distributed to Scouts approximately two weeks prior to the event, and is available on the troop’s web page: http://www.troop9625.org

Each Scout must return the signed permission slip and required fees at the meeting before the event is to occur in order to participate.

Camping Equipment

The equipment needed will obviously vary depending upon the season. It is not necessary to buy everything new or "Scout Issue" equipment. Before investing in backpacks or sleeping bags it is advised that parents talk with adult leaders. DO NOT BUY THE METAL COOK KITS FOR EATING! They burn the hands when used with hot food. Plastic is best.
