Through the year, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Venturers camp with their scout units in campsites near their homes. They learn the basic Scout skills and how to live in the out-of-doors.
In the summer, Scouts go to a permanent Camps. These camps have organized programs for the boys where Scouting skills and ideas are presented.
Many things are taught in camp. Some of them are swimming, first aid, canoeing, nature, orienteering, archery, pioneering, camping, hiking, crafts, woodcarving, conservation, and other outdoor skills.
