Camporee 2017

Following is the information for the upcoming 2017 Camporee.

This years theme is Fear is not a factor and I will need all troops to come up with a challenge for the scouts.  This can be something like the feet in the cooler challenge to see how long they can do it or the put your hands in these brains challenge and my favorite the hidden snake in the box challenge.  Lots of challenges are out there.  As this is something that needs to be tracked for appropriateness I will ask that you submit the challenge to me via email or at a round table so I can get it approved by the committee prior to the camporee.

Calling all webelos, If you would like to go camping with the scouts and venture crews this is the perfect opportunity.  We will have an area set aside for you to camp and you can use this time to check out troops and the scouts in them.  Cost is the same and you will get a patch to boot.

Click  cmporee-info-packette-2017 to get the info and registration packet.

camporee-flyer is the flyer you can pass around to all your scouts and leaders.

I hope to hear back from all of you as we get closer to a fantastic opportunity to go camping.

Yours in scouting

For the leaders of the troops I need you to turn in a practical demonstration  you will be giving in cooking or cooking gadgets and a game for post demonstration that you will be hosting. I’ve added a document with some ideas that you can pull from. Camporee – Iron Chef .  This is just a document I found online and is to get your creative juices flowing so come up with a wild and fun cooking oriented game.
