The outdoor program, as well as all other program elements, should be
developed and implemented by the PLC.
In your position as Troop Committee Outdoor Coordinator, you should make sure
that during the presentation of the Troop Program Plan for the year it at
least meets the Quality Unit requirements for nights of camping. You should
encourage the SM to exceed that requirement by have the troop participate in
the National Camping Award program.
If adult outdoor leadership skills are the problem, make sure that you
encourage the uniformed leadership are trained (Scout Leader Basic Training,
Show-and-Do's, even Wood Badge).
As a start to get things rolling, encourage the use District camporees and
other Coucnil or District outddor activities to supplement the troop's
Probably the most important thing that you can do is promote summer camp.
Remember as a Troop Committee member it is your job to help provide advise and
support to the SM and the troop. It is not your job to develop program only
facilitate its execution.
