Camporee Prep Weekend

Posted by on February 28, 2014
UnknownWhat is Camporee?
Camporee is a local gathering of Scouting Units within the Portola District in April.  It involves over 400 scouts who compete in scouting activities put on by the district.  Last year, Troop 811 brought home a number of prizes including Best Campsite and Best Gateway along with numerous individual patrol awards.
What is Camporee Prep?
Camporee Prep is a weekend camp where our Scouts practice setting up a “perfect campsite”.  They  learn and hone a number of skills they will be tested on at the Camporee as well as participate in archery, sling shot, and tomahawk throwing.
When and where is Camporee Prep?
We will meet at Hugo Hall on Friday, March 21, 2014 at 6pm and return on Sunday, March 23, 2014 at 12 pm.  We will be camping at Firestone Scout Reservation in Brea where Camporee will be held.
Who should go?
All Scouts are encouraged to go, especially our new First Year Scouts.  This will give everyone a chance to get to know one another and learn skills together as a group.  Older Scouts will be asked to assist in teaching the younger scouts.
What to bring?
Scouts will wear their Class A uniforms to and from the camp.  Class B throughout the weekend.  Sleeping bags, pads, pillows, chairs, day packs with 10 essentials, mess kits, and water.  Scouts will use the troop tents found in Hugo Hall.  The Grubmasters will be selected by our SPL to be the cooks for the weekend.
Can parents go?
Yes, parents may come as long as they have completed Youth Protection Training and have submitted the BSA Adult Application.   Please,  bring your own tent and camp gear.  Food will be provided.
