When a youth joins Scouting, they join an organization that values the fun and excitement of experiencing the outdoors. Each scouting unit is encouraged to provide its youth members with enriching, positive outdoor activities.
Adherence to the BSA’s policies found in the Guide to Safe Scouting, Youth Protection Guidelines, and Scouting Safely are required. In addition, careful program planning will assure a positive experience for your unit, the Scout and their family.
Mawat District and its scouting units offer lots of camping opportunities.
