Aloha Council Camping Overview
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.
The Aloha Council is committed to supporting the local Scouts within the Council to experience the pinnacle of the Scouting program through the Cub Scout and Scouts BSA Resident camping program with up to 50% Campership funding, being granted to qualified applicants in need.
Current BSA Youth Protection Training is strongly recommended for all adults attending camp. It is required for at least two of your adult leaders at camp, and for anyone staying longer than 72 hours. The Boy Scouts of America places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members.
