Year Round Camping
For many Scouts, camping is their favorite part of the Scouting experience. A long hike through wooded hills, telling stories around a campfire, and sleeping out under the stars form the basis for many Scout memories. Crossroads of America Council supports seven world-class camp properties that can be used year-round by units to enhance their unit activities.

Pilot Shooting Sports Programs
The Crossroads of America Council is excited to announce that it will be incorporating some of the National Council’s Pilot Programs for Shooting Sports.
Chalk Ball - The chalk ball program is intended to provide a special and unique experience for Boy Scouts and Venturers who are attending summer camp or weekend programming. Scouts will have an opportunity to shoot chalk ball markers at various targets. Youth are given 100 chalk balls and move through a course with specific rules regarding safe handling of the markers and operational equipment. The goal of the program is to teach safe handling, responsibility, and marksmanship through a fun activity.
Cowboy Action Shooting - The program offers a fun and safe introduction to cowboy action shooting with pistols, rifles, and shotguns. While attending camp, Boy Scouts and Venturers 14 years of age or older can take part in a special shooting experience with opportunities to shoot single-action .22-caliber pistols, lever action .22-caliber rifles, and 12-gauge or 20-gauge shotguns
Stay tuned for more information about when and where these exciting programs will be offered this summer and starting this fall as a weekend program option.
