2017 camporee patchJoin 400-500 of your fellow scouts from the Aquila and Mt. Tahoma Districts for a huge weekend of camping, exciting competitions, cooking, games, races, and campfires! All Scouts BSA, 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 also 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.
