Troop 1533 is involved in a wide range of events and activities throughout the year. Some of the common types include:

While camping trips may include many of the other activities described on this page, sometimes camping trips are focused on building outdoor and survival skills, improving cooking and planning abilities, 
and just having fun. 

Some of our destinations are picturesque hiking spots where Scouts can stretch their legs and take in scenic vistas and wildlife alike. 

Rafting, Kayaking, and Canoeing
Several outings each year involve water activities like white-water rafting, kayaking, and canoeing. Down-river trips might also include overnight camping, giving Scouts the ability to live on the water, if only for a weekend.
Rock Climbing
Climbing opportunities occur around Carderock and other locations in warmer weather, and via indoor venues like SportRock during colder months. Scouts learn and are certified in handling and adjustment of their rigging, and instructed during the climb.

Ropes Courses and Ziplining
A casual form of climbing that's more about obstacles and dexterity, these courses (like those at GoApe and the Sandy Springs Adventure Park) are the troop's go-to locations for ropes-based fun.

Horseback Riding

With few opportunities to ride around suburban Northern Virginia, the troop's horseback riding trips are unique opportunities to enjoy trail riding (as well as earning Horsemanship merit badge).
