Camps for our local troops
Aloha Council is proud of the opportunities that are available for Scouts and adult leaders at our camps.
Programs are offered to everyone from the first year camper to the skilled veteran in the areas of Aquatics, Shooting Sports, Handicraft, Nature and Scoutcraft. In addition to outstanding traditional Boy Scout resident camps for our local troops, Aloha Council offers youth the opportunity to serve on camp staff and enables them to utilize and develop their leadership skills.
Learning by doing is a hallmark of outdoor education.
Unit meetings offer information and knowledge used on outdoor adventures. A leader may describe and demonstrate a Scouting skill at a meeting, but the way Scouts truly learn an outdoor skill is to do it themselves on a unit outing. Health and wellness is also a part of the outdoor experience. As Scouts hike, paddle, climb, bike, or ride, their muscles become toned and their aerobic capacity increases. When they work as a patrol to plan menus for their outings, they learn to purchase cost-effective ingredients to prepare flavorful and nutritious meals.
