Shake off winter and visit Camp Long for a day of fun outdoor experiences! Youth Outdoor Adventure Day will be a free day of fun activities open to the public, for boys and girls aged 10-20. Planned activities include: archery, high-wire challenge course, rock climbing, rifle shooting, dutch oven cooking, orienteering, fire building, tomahawk throwing, geocaching, robotics, and s'more!
Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops will host fun activities designed to excite youth who are not already involved in Scouting, and give them a taste of what Scouting is all about. Existing Scouts can bring their friends and participate in all of the activities, or people can come on their own to meet local Troops and Scouts and enjoy the day on their own. This event is also the focal point for the January and February Bring A Friend contest running District-wide. Scouts can help their Troops win a pizza party!
This is an opportunity for Troops and Crews in the Aquila District to showcase Scouting in general, and their Unit in particular. Involvement from all Aquila Troops and Crews will help ensure a successful and exciting event. Adults from each Unit should plan and staff an activity for the day. Please contact the event coordinator to confirm your Unit's participation and specific activity.
