The summer camp experience helps teach Scouts self-reliance and teamwork. Scouts learn new life skills and are provided with a wholesome and safe environment, and it’s a lot of FUN! The Campership Fund is used to help send Scouts in need, who would otherwise not be able to enjoy these experiences, to summer camp.
There’s a lot more to Scouts BSA camping programs than just pitching a tent and hiking in the wilderness. Kids learn new life skills that will stay with them long after the campfires are just a wonderful memory.
What a Scout brings home from a camping trip:
- Renewed sense of purpose
- New leadership skills
- A desire to be a good citizen
- Respect for parents and adults
- Manners and Morals
- Commitment to God and Country
