April 20-22, 2018
Camporee is a weekend camp out for all troops in the Copperhead District. Patrols compete in various competitions and are judged on leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration and Scout spirit. This year's camporee will include a dutch oven dessert cook off, an Iron Chef cooking contest, flag retiring, a special activities for Order of the Arrow (OA) members, and an OA call-out at the end of the Saturday night campfire.
Events are sponsored by units which will provide a 1st place trophy for each event and the district will also provide ribbons for each event.
At least one troop representative needs to attend a mandatory pre-camp check-in (date TBA).
Registration is done by troops, and is a two-step process.
Step 1: RSVP
The troop needs to RSVP with an approximate head count for planning purposes by February roundtable. Please let us know if this number changes significantly before the event as campsite assignments are made based on registration numbers. Every troop is expected to help at the camporee (e.g., run an activity or demonstration, emcee the campfire, Scouts Own Service, logistics, administration, registration).
Step 1: RSVP for Camporee by February roundtable
Step 2: Payment
The cost is $5.00 per adult and $15.00 per Scout.
Registration opens in March.
Troops will need to turn in a roster of all attendees, as well as BSA Health and Medical Record for all participants at check-in. Troops will not be assigned a campsite until all paperwork has been submitted.
This year's activities will include the following:
- 1-Mile Compass Course
- Pancake Flipping
- Plutonium Portage
- Knot Relay
- Archery Range
- Fire Building
- Blindfolded Tent Building
- Life Ring Toss
- Stretcher Race
- Tug-o-war and recreation area
Every troop needs to run a part of the camp-o-ree (e.g., competition, facilities). This year’s camp-o-ree promises to challenge the youth leadership, as well as stretching everyone else’s comfort zones. These events cannot happen without each Scout’s competitive spirit and participation. We are always in need of certified range masters and officers, as well as volunteers to help with flag retirement throughout the day.
