Scouting can be a wonderful experience for youth from all walks of life. What is learned about the outdoors, from cooperative teamwork, and from participating in fun, productive activities at a young age as a Scout can be of benefit for a lifetime. Certainly camping and backpacking is a big part of most scout troops, and having the right camping and backpacking gear for the young scout can make a big difference in how they view their experience. The owner of Lowergear Outdoors is a Scout Counselor for Backpacking and Geocaching, and we hold weekend classes for Merit Badges in both topics at our store for scouts working on these badges. So we're very familiar with the camping gear needs of Scouts at all stages of their journey - whether it's their first trip or a long week at Philmont.
