Home / Camping  



Ask any boy why he's in Boy Scouts and "camping" will likely be near the top of his list of reasons.

Troop 629 is committed to the camping experience and the patrol method.  The Troop offers monthly camping events and a full high adventure program for the older boys.

Summer Camp 2021:

This summer, we'll be camping at Woodruff Scout Camp the week of June 20th.
