CLIMBING

Nothing builds self-confidence like accomplishing something you weren't sure you could do. Scouting's climbing program is built upon the idea of "challenge by choice" - meaning youth don't choose a skill until they think they're ready for it. Learn about climbing resources here in our council and our climbing committee's role.

SHOOTING SPORTS

BSA's shooting sports programs test skills at an age-appropriate level, with a focus on safety throughout all shooting activities. All shooting activities require trained adult supervision. Some activities may be offered as part of a Scout unit's monthly outdoor activity, while others are offered at our council summer or winter camps.

JAMBOREES

It’s the biggest event in Scouting: a national, high adventure gathering of 40,000 Scouts, leaders and staff every four years. Scouts and Venturers at the National Scout Jamboree may try out world class venues for kayaking, rock climbing, bouldering, skateboarding, BMX, plus enjoy arena shows and more. Learn dates and how to take part.

CAMPOREES

A camporee is a fun weekend filled with Scouts BSA skill competitions and meeting other Scouts from around your area (called a "district"). A camporee can look a lot like a regular weekend campout. Other times, there might be a special theme for the weekend.
