Council Camping Committee

The council camping committee, like other committees, has the primary purpose of helping units succeed. If the committee does its job effectively, youth will have a happier Scouting experience.


Council camping committee responsibilities fall into four categories:

• Outdoor program
• Properties & maintenance
• Conservation
• Camp promotions


A recent Harris Interactive study revealed the following facts for youth what participate in outdoor programs:

• 86% try something they have never tried before
• 80% participate in a decision making process for the first time
• 78% feel they have accomplished something worthwhile
• 69% reflect on their relationship with God
• 68% participate in a flag ceremony or a citizenship-building project


Adults participating in the outdoor program report that:

• 96% have played a role in helping youth succeed and grow
• 92% have help youth realize their own abilities
• 92% are with people they respect
• 92% have build lasting friendships
• 91% have fun
