Camping is an Eagle required merit badge.
Camping is something we do almost every month and rarely do we spend the night inside of cabins or lodges. The troop provides 2 and 3-person tents and are easy to set-up. Some times, you may even want to try and sleeping under the stars! Important factors in camping are having the proper equipment, practicing "Leave No Trace" and finding a campsite that meets your needs for the outing. Camping is usually combined with other activities such as hiking, cycling and boating.
