Camping is important activity for both scouts and adults of Troop 25. From simple over-nighters to week long summer camps, camping takes you on exciting adventures into the natural world. You’ll learn to live and work with others in the out-of-doors, plus how to be a good citizen of the outdoors. Camping is a fun activity, and it’s good for your mind, body, and spirit. It helps you learn to rely on yourself—on your own skills and knowledge.

When you go camping as a scout in Troop 25, you will learn skills and teamwork that you will then use throughout your entire life.
