Troop Outings  
We go weekend camping and do outdoor activities monthly - year round. Participating in the camping outings is important for rank advancement and is strongly encouraged.

Unique to 207  
We have a strong relationship with the 1st Pickering Scout Troop in Ontario, Canada. We have an annual scout exchange weekend where we alternately visit Canada or host the Canadians in Fairport. We have also included joint troop outings in our program.
Adult Participation:  
We have always been fortunate to have strong parent involvement in our program and this has been essential to our success. No amount of time or effort is too small. Simply attending occasional meetings and/or weekend outings to assist with the supervision of scouts during planned activities is a great benefit to your son and the other scouts. Many other important 'behind the scenes' activities are available as well. Please consider joining us too. Both you and your son will enjoy the time together.
