General camping information:
  • A Troop permission form is required for every camping trip - No Form = No Trip
    Permission forms are attached to each sign-up genius.
  • Parents are encouraged to attend the campouts, you are not expected to be an ASM, but general help is appreciated.
  • Campouts only work if Scouts sign up and we have parental involvement to get the to and from camping trips,
    You dont have to drive for every campout, but consider offering your services for at least 2 per calendar year.


Upcoming Camping Trip

May 18-20, 2018  - Virginia Creeper Trail    

Address:  Damascus, VA

We will meet at the shed on Friday evening at approximately 5:30 pm and leave at 6:00pm.  Please plan to meet at the Scout Shed to support an on-time departure.

The Virginia Creeper National Recreation Trail is a 34.3-mile rail-to-recreation trail, traversing through two counties from Abingdon, Virginia, through Damascus, and ending just past Whitetop Station in the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area, at the Virginia-North Carolina border.  Scouts will camp in the town of Damascus and ride a portion of the trail that ends in town.  A special feature of the weekend is the celebration of Appalachian Trail Days.  Don't miss this trip!

On Sunday morning we will pack up, Leave No Trace, then head back to Raleigh.
