How many times a year does Troop 5 campout?
Troop 5 camps out every month from September to
June. Most campouts depart from the Maplewood Pool parking lot on Friday
evenings with a return on Sunday early afternoon with parent drivers dropping
your son off directly at your home. Rides are arranged by Patrol by the Patrol
Leader and it is important for all parents to volunteer to drive. Many campouts
are within a 1-2 hour drive of Maplewood & South Orange so parents have the
option to stay and camp (a few choose to participate with the Troop during the
day and find nearby alternative lodging for evenings) or do a turn around trip
if you are just driving one way or a round trip.
