Camporee is a weekend camp out for troops. Patrols compete in various competitions and are judged on leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration and Scout spirit. The planned activities include shotgun, rifle, archery, climbing, fire burning, tomahawk throwing, and more! Each troop will need to run an activity. The will be a Dutch oven dessert contest for patrols. Each troop should prepare two skits or songs for the Saturday campfire and awards ceremony.
Every troop must send a representative to the March roundtable to help plan the camporee. Every troop needs run a part of the camporee (e.g., competition, facilities). This year’s camporee 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.
Registration is a two-step process. The troop leadership needs to RSVP with an approximate headcount for planning purposes by February roundtable. Please let the event chair 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, interfaith service, logistics, administration, registration). The online registration fee is $21.50 for the first Scout and $20 for each additional Scout and covers camping, ammo, equipment, and a patch; the adult registration fee is $10. There is no onsite registration. The event is being held at the new Camp Strake (2020 Camp Strake Rd., Coldspring, TX 77331)
