Scout Camping

Troop 17's campsite
Our Scouts had a great time at their Fall Camporee this weekend. Scouting is a wonderful way for young men to learn several important life-skills. This happens best in the shared experiences of camping. Scouts learn teamwork and individual responsibility. They learn to care for themselves in all kinds of circumstances. An appreciation of wild places leads to a desire to care for the environment. And moments of quiet reflection leave space for contemplating the important things of life. In today's fast paced world, not many activities can give you all that. Here a few snapshots from our weekend.
