Scouting Programs Welcome!

Options: Back 

Scouting helps young people in their physical, mental and spiritual development so that they may play constructive roles in society. At Fisheating Creek Outpost, we support scouts and their adult volunteers.

Here, scouts can be outside to learn, explore, make new friends and play, all while developing appreciation and respect for the outdoor environment. Some things scouts can do at Fisheating Creek include:

  • Day and overnight camps
  • Kayak and canoe paddling
  • Hiking
  • Fishing
  • Study fish and wildlife management
  • Environment and nature studies

We are happy to work with you to tailor a camp specific to your group's needs. Some scouting groups that we work with are shown below.

Leave No Trace

All scouting organizations practice Leave No Trace, a set of ideas that singularly might seem unimportant until you consider the combined effects of millions of visitors to our nation's parks and campgrounds. Some basic rules:

  1. Plan ahead and prepare
  2. Travel and camp on durable surfaces
  3. Dispose of waste properly (Pack It In, Pack It Out)
  4. Leave what you find
  5. Minimize campfire impacts
  6. Respect wildlife
  7. Be considerate of other visitors
