Patrols (5-8 Scouts each) will learn outdoor skills then compete against one another for top scores and bragging rights!

Registration opens December 1, 2023

Learn and practice your fire building, first aid, and a host of other wilderness survival skills. Enjoy campfires, games, and field events. For Scouts BSA and Venturers.

A camporee is many things—camping fun for youth, the thumping of hundreds of feet on the way to an evening campfire, and the blue smoke from fires cooking stew or ham and eggs. It’s the ripple of wind-blown flags in the morning sun. It’s catching the idea of teamwork in a patrol.

A camporee can be a perfect showplace for the Scouting program and, therefore, go far beyond just being a gathering of youth. A camporee starts with the recognition that a patrol is the basic camping unit. The patrol demonstrates its very best camping techniques and shares its experiences with other patrols. The camporee involves the type of equipment that can be carried in a pack by youth and can be set up entirely by them, allowing them to be completely self-sufficient for a self-reliant experience over a period of two or three days.

The May 2020 Camporee was converted to a virtual event. It was awesome!

Everyone (not just Scouts BSA) was welcome to participate in the Stay-at-Home Camporee to show off their Scout skills! We featured challenges such as first aid at home, Scout Trivia game, best Scout jokes, patch design contest, show us your mask design, and more! We interacted with each other through social media posts to Instagram and Facebook. This also helped spread the message that Scouting is still continuing during the Stay at home order.

No registration was needed, except for the patch. The patch was $10. Half of the proceeds went to a COVID-19 response non-profit organization.
