Camping is one of the most fun activities that you will do as a scout in Troop 1. We usually go on car campouts or backpacking trips once a month, for one or two nights at a time. In December and January, we do not camp out due to the cold weather, but instead usually go skiing for a day or do another activity. Whether you are a first-time camper or an experienced backpacker, Troop 1 campouts are lots of fun for everyone.

On Troop 1 campouts, you have the opportunity to go hiking, work on advancement, play fun games, or just spend time with your friends. Camping out in the wilderness is definitely a rewarding experience.
When you are camping out with Troop 1, it is important that you respect the wilderness around you and the other people there. This is why Troop 1 does not allow any electronic devices other than digital cameras on campouts. Camping is a time to relax in nature, not play with electronics.
