Activities & Adventures
Spending time in the great outdoors is imperative to our program. Our active year round camping program brings us all over the state! We try for at least one campout per month.
Here's a list of some of the campouts we've been on!
Mountain Bike Trips
Off road bicycling is always an adventure! Wether we rock the local terrain of Annadel State Park or the exciting single track loop of Camp Tamarancho in Fairfax, we are always ready to hit the trail with two wheels!
"25 Miler" Backpacking
This 25 mile introductory backpacking trek is for second year scouts and above. The Scouts will experience a week long outdoor trip without the comforts of car camping, during which, Scouts focus on basic backcountry skills and the leave no trace method all in the great outdoors!
One campout a year is designated for your family to join! Come out and enjoy the Scouting experience with the whole fam!
Our Venture Crew often invites Scouts that are almost of age (or the required rank) to one or more of the Crews activities or outings to see if they are ready to accept the challenge! Check out what our Venture Crew is all about.
Peggy Sue Car Cruise
We volunteer annually at the Car Show as a fundraising event. Landen Saal, one of our proud Eagles, poses with his challenger he worked on himself at the 2022 event.
Every campout offers a unique but structured environment for camp wide games, competitions, free time, skills and FUN! Maybe it's a rope swing, king of the dock or canoe wars. Maybe it's the Dillon beach games or capture the flag. Regardless, it's sure to end with campfire skits!
When the sun comes out so do our paddles! Every summer 125 navigates the local waterways with our own supply of canoes and kayaks. Our Venture Crew often take on more challenging white water rafting adventures like the rapids of Cache Creek!
"50 Miler" Backpacking
The name says it all! The Venture Crew 50 mile, week long hike is a more extensive wilderness outing where the older Scouts will continue to enhance their backpacking skills in the high country. Enjoy epic summit views, pristine lakes, alpine fishing and lots and lots of adventurous miles!
Troop 125 loves the water! Come summer, we pull out our ski boats and enjoy the local lakes with a full range of water sports including skiing, wake and knee boarding, and of course; inner tubing!
Part of the Troop 125 experience is practicing citizenship by embracing local history. To do this, we've visited (and sometimes camped) at places like the USS Pampanito, USS Hornet, America's Cup winner USA 76, The Adobe, The Presidio, Angel Island, and Fort Ross to name a few.
PCAM Air Show
Hopefully the Air Show returns one day so we can get back to this annual fundraiser.
"Because it was there"
That's our answer to why we decide to hike stuff! We especially enjoy summit-ing peaks for the Rim of the Bay and Highlander patches.
This annual July event is a one week adventure with other troops where Scouts learn skills, earn merit badges, enjoy other camp program areas such as rock climbing, shooting sports, aquatics, nature, and campfire skits!
High adventure is the keystone of the Scouting experience - from the ocean to the mountains - and T.125 does it all! Ropes courses, pioneering, zip lines, rock climbing, repelling, and more!
This overnight adventure for local Cub Scout packs (Webelos 1 & 2's) serves as an introduction to Scout outdoor skills and the local Troops. For over 30 years we have participated as Staff giving us an opportunity to teach and inspire the next generation of Scouts!
Have a new and exciting activity in mind? Talk to your patrol leader and make it happen! We utilize the Scout run method meaning the calendar is up to you, and we are always accepting and exploring new ideas!
We sell the freshest wreathes every holiday season for a fundraising event towards Summer Camp. The top seller in the troop gets a pretty epic award!
