As with all District Events, it takes a few to plan and many willing to bring the Magic to make it happen! Help us have a successful and well-staffed Camporee by Volunteering. None of us know how to throw a Caber, lets learn together! Volunteers not camping with a unit or needing meals will be fed. Please indicate in the Sign-up Genius comments.


TFC Scouts may camp and participate in this event for no charge as part of their annual activity fee. All participants are “on their own” for meal arrangements (including lunch). The activity list is subject to change and to BSA’s Guide to Safe Scouting.
