Troop VA-2907 Campout Information

Troop VA-2907 holds four campouts each year, ideally one each season.

Campout Rules:


All Trailmen must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is required to remain with the Trailman for the entire time. If someone other than the parent or guardian will supervise a scout, the Troop Master must be notified ahead of time who it is.


Campers are responsible for bringing camping gear. Patrols are responsible for meals, including food, drinks, plates, utensils, trash bags, and cooking gear. Each Patrol is responsible for clean-up, trash removal, and extinguishing campfires in designated areas. Leave no trace!


No one should not run in the campsite (tent area), near a fire, or at night. Lights out is at 10:00 p.m.

Alcohol, Drug, and Tobacco Policy of Trail Life USA:
