"Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity...”

- John Muir

Health Forms

Before a Scout can participate in an outdoor activity, the Health Form must be completed by a parent.

(the Health Form only needs to be completed once per Scouting year). BSA Health Form Policy


  • What to bring on a camp out depends on what the Troop is doing (backpacking, car camping), what the season is, etc.

  • Never wear cotton on backpacking trips

  • Remember the Scout motto: "Be Prepared!" Scouts bring rain gear even if it is not forecast to rain. See the "Scout Basic Outdoor Essentials" below

  • Consult the Scout Handbook for a basic guide to what to bring hiking and camping.

  • Troop Gear: The Troop has cooking gear, stoves, and tents the Scouts may use. Each Patrol plans the meals and brings the food and a "Patrol Box" containing the Patrol camping gear, such as stove, pots and pans, cleanup materials, etc.

  • Food: Typically, the Patrol plans their meals for a trip. One Scout per patrol is designated "Grub Master" and will buy the meal the Patrol has planned. For backpacking trips, Scouts bring their own food.

Here are some great resources for what to bring and wear on a camp out:

Summer Camp

Troop 770 Summer Camp 2020


Instead of traditional summer camp, the Troop will be going to Jack Mountain to work on advancement and conservation/service hours.

When: August 14-16

Where: Jack Mountain

Cost: $35 - Check payable to "Troop 770"

or Venmo @David-Bernhardt-6

Summer Camp is a traditional Boy Scout Activity where Scouts have an opportunity to earn merit badges as well as learn many Scout skills and have a great week with friends. Typically, the Troop spends a week during the summer at an organized Boy Scout Camp with other Troops from the local area and around the region.

Scouts stay in two-man tents with cots, eat at the dining hall, and attend merit badge courses. There are also opportunities for older Scouts to do other things, like ropes courses, week-long backpacking or sailing treks, and other high Adventure activities.

Check out the opportunities for High Adventure camp for next summer. You can go on your own and join other Scouts from around the Country and around the world at BSA High Adventure Camps!

In 2016, Troop 770 Scouts went to Philmont Scout Ranch to backpack for 12 days in the New Mexico wilderness.

Troop 770 is returning to Philmont this summer, 2020!!
