New Texas Scouting Adventures
Medina River Greenway Trail
Outdoor Adventure TourScout camp, with its wide of activities, staff and facilities, is the crowning experience of the Scouting Youth Program. Age appropriate programs include day camp for youngsters, resident camp for pre-teens and adventure treks for older youth.
Each scout unit is encouraged to plan a monthly field trip adventure (day trip or overnighter) and at least once per year, a weekly long adventure camp.
This program promotes valuable character growth in a great fun environment surrounded by strong peers and adult mentors. Scouts also learn important skills such as leadership, teamwork, planning, conquering challenges, and good citizenship.
Before planning major camping events, boy scouts and their leaders should carefully review the requirements of the camping merit badge and plan accordingly. All scouting events should be planned out by the boys under adult supervision.
