Older/Experienced Scouts

 

Hello Etowah Troops!!

 

 We are mid-way through our planning for an exciting 2014 SPACE PIRATES themed Camporee this coming October 17-18-19th weekend.  Here  are a few updates and requests...

 
First, please have an adult Unit representative/Camporee coordinator fill out the online Preliminary Participation survey AND Unit Event  volunteer sign-up sheet as soon as possible to assist with final planning.   Note, the Scouts chose the competition Event names, and we decided  to have a little competition for Unit Leaders for the best development of the Space Pirate theme used at an Event station.

     

 Click on this link to respond to the

 participation/volunteer survey form.

 

 Second, we are bringing back the "Challenger Track" for older Scout patrols and Venture Crews to participate in where they will demonstrate their  Leave No Trace, backpack/camping, and team-building skills.  This Track was a hit last year, and we are making improvements to the program  this year.

 In addition to the typical Camporee competition events,

 programing will include ....

  "Restaurant at the end of the Universe" Cook-off

  "Captain of the Cove" cardboard boat race

  "To Infinity & Beyond" Zip-line Balloon drop

   Jamboree On The Air in association with the

     ARRL and a Saturday Night Astronomy Watch

    (weather permitting)

  

 We hope your unit will be able to come.

 Again, the dates are October 17-18-19th,

     2014 at Belk Scout Camp.

 The fee is just $10 per participant....and, of course,

     includes a Camporee patch.

 A preliminary Leader's Guide will be coming soon

     with more details.
