Scouts BSA Outdoor Program
Outdoor adventure is the promise made to kids when they join Scouting. Kids yearn for outdoor programs that stir their imagination and interest.
Summer camp is what many Scouts enjoy most. Camp programs provide numerous opportunities for Scouts to earn merit badges along their advancement trail. The Glacier's Edge Council hosts Scouts BSA Summer Camp at Ed Bryant Scout Reservation. For complete information about the fantastic program at EBSR, click here.
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. Throughout the year, the Glacier's Edge Council hosts many camporees on the district and council level. See the calendar below!
