Scouting’s Outdoor Program… “Scouting is three-quarters Outing”
It is the mission of the Mobile Area Council Camping Program to provide Scouts and their families an educational outdoor experience through which they are afforded opportunities to be challenged, work toward advancement, and participate with their groups while learning and having fun.
Scouting provides many opportunities for youth to participate in adventures. From day hikes to camporee, summer resident camp and day camp, the activities match the interests and abilities of the Scouts. Older Scouts may participate in high-adventure programs such as rock climbing, rappelling, and whitewater rafting. Younger Scouts may attend resident camps and day camps, and learn teamwork within their den, patrol and troop. Summer camp and day camp blend a fun program with advancement requirements to reinforce skills learned throughout the year. In Scouting, fitness is fun with a purpose.
