Below are highlights from this year's American Legion Cracker Trail Competition.
Councils and districts plan camporees and other outings during the year that give Scouts an opportunity to test their knowledge and skills in competitive events with other troops and patrols.
Reasonably short hikes (three to 10 miles) in terrain without a lot of elevation gain or loss.
A Scout patrol or Varsity Scout squad may participate in patrol activities with the permission of its Scoutmaster or Coach and parents/guardians. Appropriate adult leadership must be present for all overnight Scouting activities.
Troops/teams that plan and carry out outings once a month attract and retain youth at a much higher level than those that have fewer outings during the year.
