Explore OUr Adventures

Tsroop 221 encourages our scouts to plan and execute challenging outings. The Troop holds monthly campouts and travel out of state for summer camp. We also send two or more Scout crews on High Adventure. In early Summer, we alternate between a Buffalo National River canoe trip and a West Texas road trip. Additionally, the Troop heads to the Ouachita Mountains in the fall for our annual overnight backpacking trip.

Monthly Campouts

Our scouts camp every month from September to May. We typically stay within 3 to 4 hours from Plano. Common activities include canoeing, backpacking, cooking competitions, shooting sports, and wilderness survival. The Troop camps at state parks, military bases, private property, and the local Circle Ten Council Camps. Every year, our scouts participate in Webelo Woods at Camp James Ray. The Troop also holds a TFC transition campout at Camp Wisdom. Additionally, the scouts conduct a “Canoe Shakedown” at Camp Constantin.

High Adventures

Our scouts love High Adventure! Accordingly, Troop 221 sends 2+ crews per year to Scouts BSA High Adventure Programs. As a result, several scouts have obtained the High Adventure Triple Crown for going to Sea Base, Northern Tier, and Philmont. In addition, the troop has an annual backpacking campout in the Ouachita Mountains. And finally, we alternate between a Buffalo National River canoeing trip and a West Texas road trip to Guadalupe Peak, Carlsbad Caverns, Balmorhea State Park, Fort Davis, Monahans Sandhills, and McDonald Observatory.
