Troop 284 Camping



Troop 284 encourages all of its scouts to take full advantage of the monthly and summer camping opportunities that we offer.  Outdoor adventure is the promise made to Scouts when they join Scouting.  Youth yearn for outdoor programs that stir their imagination and interest. 

Organized camping is a creative, educational experience incooperative group living in the outdoors. It uses the natural surroundings tocontribute significantly to physical, mental, spiritual, and social growth. 

  • Camping contributes to good health.
  • Camping helps campers develop self-reliance and resourcefulness.
  • Camping enhances spiritual growth.
  • Camping contributes to social development.
  • Camping is an experience in citizenship training.
  • Camping helps develop scout knowledge and skills that scouts will have throughout their lives.

    Summer Camp



    Troop 284 has a long tradition of going to Camp Yawgoog for summer camp each year.
    .
    Summer camp has proven to provide a significant life experience to all who attend.  Please see the attached document for a study on all of the positive impacts summer camp has on the life of a young scout.
