Q: What sort of activities do Boy Scouts do?
Scouts get to do all sorts of activities, and this isn't limited to camping. But that doesn't mean that troops doesn't go on really fun outings! To see a list of some of the examples of adventures Troop 75 scouts have had the chance to experience, see the "About Our Troop" link in the sidebar. Besides camping, Boy Scouts have a vast array of merit badges that they can earn (130 of them!), some of them required for rank advancement. These badges show an understanding in various subjects, including American Business, First Aid, Swimming, Shotgun Shooting, Radio, and much, much, more!
