Scouts BSA Camping

Outdoor adventures are an integral – and fun – part of the Scouting experience. Scouts BSA camping events are a top priority for Potawatomi Area Council – our Troops have opportunities to camp in different settings and durations throughout the year. Whether you are a new Scout or entering advanced programs like Venturing or High Adventures as an experienced Scout, PAC gives you access to unique and interactive camping opportunities.

Scouts BSA Outdoor Adventures

Scouts are promised outdoor adventures when they join, and we will not disappoint our young men and women. From learning the basic skills needed to camp to achieving new merit badges and awards, Scout camping provides chances to achieve new levels of success. Scouts will learn more about their natural environment and skills that will contribute to their self-confidence. They will also have many opportunities to enhance their own personal growth through outdoor programs, adventures and team/individual challenges.

Short and Long Camp Experiences

Scouts BSA camping is designed to provide Scouts with a wide range of experiences and growth opportunities. Short camps can be one to three overnight, council-staffed events, either locally in the greater Waukesha, WI area and at Camp Long Lake or at national BSA camping adventures. Long camps are council-organized camps that are four nights or longer.

All Scouts BSA camping events, short and long, are opportunities for Scouts to tailor their experience. Scouts can choose from a wide range of activities that can earn them awards and merit badges. As Scouts mature, they will be able to get more out of their camping experience on a personal level.
