Green River District
Green River Camporee PDF Print E-mail

Join 4-500 of your fellow scouts from the Aquila and Green River Districts for a huge weekend of camping, exciting competitions, cooking, games, races, and
 campfires! All Boy, Explorer, Girl, Varsity, Venturing, and Webelos scouts are invited to participate in this fun-filled weekend. Scouts setup their own camps complete with custom gates, and compete against teams from other units in unit sponsored games of skill, knowledge, and strength. They cook their own meals, race in chariots they built, and entertain each other with 
hilarious skits and songs around the campfire each night. Nothing could be better!

Camporee is primarily an activity to enhance the patrol method within your unit. It is also a chance for scouts to show off their very best camping and cooking techniques, share their fun and experiences with other teams, build their teamwork, and cooperate in taking on all challenges. All activities are run with the patrol method in mind. Camping is done in large unit areas, but each team (as registered) will be judged on their ability to camp and complete scout skills on their own. Each team should maintain an individual campsite within the larger unit area. Camporee involves the type of equipment that can be carried in and set up entirely by youth, enabling them to be completely self-sufficient for a self-reliant experience over a three day period.

2014 Eagle Projects Ideas @ Soos Creek Botanical Garden PDF Print E-mail

29308 132nd Ave SE, Auburn
(a mile or so from Reber Ranch and Covington)

We are a 23 acres, non-profit, garden that was mostly planted in the 1960's and opened to the public in 2010. The Soos Creek Botanical Garden is generally open Wednesdays through Saturdays, 10am to 3pm, mid-March through mid-November. Our opening date this year is March 19th.

Scouts doing Eagle Projects may come on additional days and hours with prior notice from the Garden Director or Scout Liaison.  All projects will be designed or get design approval from the Garden Director and or Garden Manager.

Potential Eagle Projects identified for 2014:

1)  Install hand rails leading down to Soos Creek.  The area is often muddy and slippery and visitors have difficulty getting down to the Creek safely.

2)  Build storage shed to house our small John Deere Tractor and Trailer.

3)  Build a heavy arbor to hold a Wisteria Vine, which weighs hundreds of pounds and lives many decades.

4)  Build a heavy grape arbor.  Same as #3.

5)  Build a 3 sided shed, with door (attached to our Barn) to hold tables/chairs.

6)  Install Vinyl gutters to be put onto the Barn, and roof run-off from barn diverted into large cistern (we have the cistern).  Stored water used to water plants near the barn:  pumpkins, sunflowers, etc.

Please reply to scbg.barbara.nagel@gmail.com to discuss projects.  Write" Eagle Project" in the subject line.  For further information about the garden, please see our website at: sooscreekbotanicalgarden.org

Thanks,

Barbara Nagel, Garden/Scout Liaison
