The outdoor program of camping and hiking is the heart of Scouting, and is one of Scouting’s eight methods. Troop 368 plans a variety of overnight experiences, conducted on a monthly basis year round, in all weather.
The primary objectives of a Troop 368 outdoor experience are to:
Ensure the safety and health of all participants during the activity.
Practice Leave No Trace camping that leaves the surroundings in a better condition than the Troop found them.
Recommended List for a Typical Weekend Campout
Use common sense along with this list. Always bring at least one complete change of EVERYTHING, and several pairs of socks. You DON’T need expensive equipment; much can be homemade or improvised. ASK the uniformed leaders for ideas.
