Past Adventures

For High Adventure Camping in summer of 2005, Troop 563 enjoyed the special opportunity to be among the limited number of Units to visit the fabled Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. They had a great time in this unique Scout adventure. Wow!

The Troop makes an outing at least monthly. Hiking, canoeing, fishing, and orientering are some of the main activities. Another favorite is spelunking (cave exploring). Camp skills, outdoorsmanship, cooking and survival skills are practiced and perfected. Great!

Summer and Winter Camps are well-attended by our Troop. These are occasions for hard-working Scouts to perform merit badge work which can not be over-looked. Good Job!

Previous High Adventure excursions have seen Troop 563 journey all the way to Bissett, Manitoba and then set off into the wilderness of the Northern Tier canoe trek. Fantastic!

Troop 563 belongs to the the Gray Owl District which is a part of the Circle Ten Council of B.S.A.
