Troop 678 is an active scout-led troop that typically plans at least one outing a month. This includes at least one summer camp; we love going to Colorado, but mix it up with other premier camps in Texas and nearby states. We also participate in winter camps at Thanksgiving or Christmas to Louisiana or to Lost Pines. Sometimes we do both! Our favorite destinations for weekend activities include swimming in the Frio River at Garner State Park, backpacking, and rock climbing at Enchanted Rock.
The troop meets weekly, and the scouts hold patrol meetings where they plan the next outing and rank advancement meetings where they learn outdoor skills like first aid and rope typing. A few times a year, the troop also teaches a merit badge class. Typically this is an Eagle-required merit badge.
