Our Mission
  • Crew 260 is devoted to teaching advanced topics of preparedness, and leadership to further aid in character development.  This is done through an advanced outdoor program consisting of backpacking, canoeing, service projects, and council service. Council service is accomplished through a significant presence in Camp Hi-Sierra Staff and Order of the Arrow functions, both of which encourage leadership development and leadership retention.
