“Learning the Basics and more”

This camporee will focus on key outdoor skills. Scouts will be covering outdoor skills but not in a competitive environment. They will be attending sessions during the day. These sessions will be designed to instruct them on basic scout skills but will show them and give them the opportunity to try out these skills. Emphasis will be on learning and expanding current skill sets. This will give the troops a chance to catch up on the basic skills in a controlled outdoor environment. These are all perishable skills and will also give older scouts new techniques to use.

The following will be the topics covered in rotation:

Fire BuildingShelter BuildingBlowgun and Sling Shot
Hiking StovesWater PurificationKnots and Lashings
Basic Compass

In order, to facilitate this camporee, we will need help of the adult leaders and senior scouts to run the sessions. All the instructional material will be provided or brought by the patrols.

We will be holding a flag retirement ceremony Saturday evening and are inviting the troops to bring flags they have, to be retired. Instructions will be given at the camporee for the ceremony and what the troops will need to do for prepping flags.

Following the retirement ceremony, we will be holding a cracker barrel for all Camporee participants.
