You will learn how to set up camp, cook, work with ropes and woods tools, plan campfires, use a map and compass, prepare for hiking and backpacking, identify plants and animals, and practice outdoor ethics. Each outdoor session will bring to life the pages of the Scout Handbook to help you deliver the promise of Scouting to the youth in your troop.
