Outdoor Programs

Camping is a fun and exciting part of Scouting. A variety of age-appropriate camping opportunities are available from Cub Scouts all the way up through Venturing. Scouts can camp with a family member, camp with their Troop, or participate in high adventure activities once they are a little older.

Camping Opportunities

For a hundred years, Scouting's magic has been rooted in adventure!  Be it the Cub Scout who finds fun in a mud puddle, the Scout who experiences the rush of an Order of the Arrow Call Out Ceremony, or a Venturer who finds their own leadership qualities while on a horseback trek.  Kids have a natural need to have adventures and the Hoosier Trails Council is excited to offer just that. 

Studies have proven that extended participation in Scouting will help young people to be successful later in life.  Adults that were involved in our program as kids agree that they participated for the fun, but along the way they learned habits of strong character, how to get along with others, and how to be honorable leaders.  Summer Camp is the perfect way to resonate the passion for adventure, love of the out-of-doors, and strengthen family bonds.

The Hoosier Trails Council is committed to providing your family with summertime opportunities to catch the Scouting fever and to benefit from our life-changing programs.  It is never too early to plan, so mark your calendar now for the adventure that best serves your family.  Coordinate your registration for camp with your local Scout unit and we look forward to having some fun together!
