Camping is the great outdoor experience of scouting. As a scout becomes at home in the outdoors, he
unconsciously absorbs some of the greatness of nature itself – the stillness of the forest, the merriment of the
mountain stream, the breath of the ocean, the freedom of the ski, the clearness the wild, the beauty of the sunset. As he works with nature, his resourcefulness and self-reliance grow. The woods, the streams, the trails and the wild creatures that inhabit them become his friends and the outdoors a lifelong source of recreation.
