2023 Scout Outdoor Campout Events

  • Jan 13-14 Lock-In at NWUMC.  A Scout favorite in January, combined with a food drive, basketball, video games, cards, games, and staying up as long as you dare!
  • February 24-26  Caving Campout at Bluespring Caverns, Bedford, IN Leave Saturday at noon for a five-hour road trip to Indiana. At the caves, Scouts rotate through stations learning about cave formation before going on an optional spelunking adventure, taking a boat ride, and sleeping in the caves.
  • March 10-11  Climbing Campout at Vertical Adventures Experience indoor rock climbing in this Troop 200 favorite, which also happens to be one of the first adventures for 2023 crossovers! This campout starts on a Friday evening at 10:00 pm with safety instructions by the qualified staff at Vertical Adventures, climbing, pizza, and sleeping on the mats.
  • March 31-April 2  Patrol Methods Campout at Camp Lazarus Come learn what it means to operate as a patrol while bonding with your peers.
  • April 20-23  West Point Campout This trip has it all with Scout camaraderie at the West Point Camporee sponsored by the esteemed United States Military Academy in New York. An annual invitational camping event, the weekend consists of camping on the Academy property with displays, competitions, demonstrations, and a trading post.
  • May 5-7  Advancement Campout at Otter Run Two nights of camping in the woods with a focus on learning and earning! Those rank requirements that especially need the outdoors, like ax yard, knife safety, fire starting, and cooking, are the types of fun Scouts can expect. This is all capped off with an entertaining campfire on Saturday evening.
  • June 23-25  Ziplining Campout in Hocking Hills A spectacular thrill for the daring nature-lover, zipline through the fauna and flora of Hocking Hills!
  • July 9-15  Summer camp at Friedlander A full week of friends and fun at Friedlander! Enjoy the outdoors in the beautiful sprawling land of Loveland, OH, as you participate in Merit Badge courses, dip into the refreshing waters of The Lake, and develop lasting memories from summer camp.
  • August TBD  Patrol Activities Individual patrols take the reins in planning and executing an outing, service, or campout with one another. Boys gain valuable experience in leadership through this activity and opportunity to explore new things.
  • September 8-10  Fishing and Cooking Campout at Lake Savage A great catch of a campout, this event teaches you how to fish for bass at the lake, then cook and serve it! Set at the pristine private property of Mr. Savage in Londonderry, OH, this campout is relaxing for Scouts and Scouters alike.
  • October TBD  Monster Mash Campout at Camp Lazarus Spooky, scary fun at Lazarus along the scare trail or running carnival games all goes to bring entertainment to visiting Cub Scouts and their families. Workdays leading up to the event encourage creativity and ownership over the stations, and double as service hours too.
  • November 3-4  Turkey Campout at NWUMC Give thanks for all that the scouting movement gives to youth all around the world, and in Columbus, Ohio, as the troop welcomes area Arrow of Lights to fun and games this November. Friends and family are also invited to the best turkey dinner around!
