Boy Scout Activities

Boy Scouts take part in many fun activities throughout the year. When you become a boy scout you could go camping and go on other fun trips!

Camping

When joining Boy Scout Troop 17 you have the opportunity to go camping with other scouts, involving many activities, which make your weekends long lastingand fun!

Hiking

Troop 17 goes on hikes during camping trips and also does hikes on weekends as a troop. Usually hikes are 4-20 miles long and on camping trips scouts cook a meal to bring with them on the hike.

Water Sports

Our Troop is fond of going on water sports, such as kayaking, water rafting, and canoeing. We also go on swimming trips and do many of these activities at Nobebosco summer camp as well.

Target Sports

We have some great marksmans in our troop. Our troop enjoys improving on our rifle shooting and archery skills when going on some camping trips.

Zip Lining and Biking

As adventurous scouts, we love going zip lining and doing other freightening, but rewarding activities. We have also done biking marathons which are extremely tiring, but again rewarding. Most scouting activities are very tiring, but its a great experience at the end of the day.

Learning Essential Skills

Essential skills are very important, and scouting can help you earn them. These skills include: character, leadership, citizenship, fitness, first aid, aquatics, learning about the nature, outdoor ethics, hiking, camping, cooking, navigation, working with tools, and personal safety awareness.
