Snow camping is a popular winter activity for sturdy Boy Scouts. Every year, thousands venture into snow covered fields and conduct a variety of maneuvers, all designed to prove that they can survive and thrive in cold conditions that cause their parents to mutter about hot tubs and hotel rooms. However, while cold weather outings can be challenging, not all winter outings can be called snow camping, no matter what your leaders tell you.

To keep their program going when the weather is bad, some units organize outings in the city. Overnights in museums, park gazebos, rock climbing gyms, and fitness centers are possible; and, if they are lucky, the boys might even sleep in decommissioned battleships or submarines in some areas. And while all of these are great Scouting experiences, they do not always deliver the adventure of Scouting that is described in the Scout Handbook. Real Scouts spent at least part of every year dealing with real winter weather.
