What we do!

When it comes to what we do, we’re proud to say that we’re way past the “recruiting hype”. This troop DOES!

For example:

  • … camping or other “big idea’ EVERY month
  • … weekend canoe trip does the Ardèche
  • … 7-day canoe trip / 50 mile excursion down the Allier River
  • … a week of sailing in the Med
  • … fishing and fly-fishing on local lakes and rivers
  • … shoot rifles and shotguns
  • … archery
  • … 150 mile bike hikes in Holland
  • … pioneering projects
  • … orienteering with map & compass
  • … hiking, hiking, and more hiking!
  • … “Wilderness Survival” weekends sleeping in shelters we built from scratch
  • … First-aid weekends
  • … Klondike Derby in Kandersteg
  • … week-long Summer Camp each year in Kandersteg or elsewhere
  • … study mammals, reptiles & amphibians, nature
  • … study soil & water conservation, oceanography
  • … cooking over open fire
  • … hosted Leadership training weekends
  • … Run Merit Badge days and weekends
  • … And there is so much MORE!

We do not limit the level of “adventure” the boys (and soon girls!) want to have. Scouting is a SCOUT-LED program. The SCOUTS decide what we do, and strong, trained, committed adults help them achieve their goals.
