The members of the course are formed into patrols and these into a troop.  The entire troop camps in the outdoors, camping, cooking their own meals, and practices Scout skills while honing their leadership and teamwork.

Next course will be held April 12-14 &  at T.L. Storer Scout Reservation - stay tuned for more details
