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 April 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. Step 1: RSVP - The troop leadership needs to RSVP with an approximate headcount for planning purposes by April roundtable. Please let us know if this number changes significantly before the event as campsite assignments are made based on registration numbers.

Step 2: Payment - The online registration fee is $26.50 for the first Scout and $25 for each additional Scout and covers camping, ammo, equipment, and a patch; the adult registration fee is $15. Registration is completed by the troop leadership online with credit card or electronic check. The late fee is $30 and begins 5/3/21. There is no onsite registration. The training is being held at Tellepsen Scout Ranch (3450 County Road 317, Navasota, TX 77868).

Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. Trained leaders impact the quality of programs, leader tenure, youth tenure, and a whole lot more. A trained leader is better prepared to make the Scouting program all it can be! Every Scout deserves a trained leader. See the council training schedule for a list of additional trainings offered around the council. For more information, contact Connie Oubre.
