The Great 2020 Virtual Camporee
As everyone continues to practice social distancing, Three Fires Council would like to offer our very first, and hopefully only, Virtual Camporee. While we need to remain physically distant, with the use of technology we don't need to remain socially distant. TFC Volunteers and staff have put together a fun virtual Camporee program that a Scout and their whole family can be a part of.
Check out The Great 2020 Virtual Camporee website for schedules and program details.
Make sure to follow the event FaceBook page.
We will start on Friday Night with an opening campfire live from Camp Big Timber. Weather permitting we will also have a virtual Astronomy Hike.
Saturday morning will start with a live Flag Ceremony, followed by activities for all Scouts and families like:
- Virtual Nature Hike through Camp Big Timber
- Home Scavenger Hunt Challenge Game
- Camp Sight Setup Challenge
- Online Merit Badge and STEM NOVA Classes
- Demonstrations on Dutch Oven Cooking, Fire Building and more.
- Kahoot Challenge Games
- Mystery Ingredient Dinner Challenge
- AND MUCH MORE
After a full day of fun and adventure, settle in for a live Closing Campfire and then join us for late night songs and stories as we watch our campfire embers die down as night settles in.
For Scout BSA members, you can use much of this Camporee as you would a normal campout. Your unit leaders will get information on how you work on rank requirements and get a night of camping in too.
You can register for free and get access to most of the Camporee program. For $15 you can get a limited "Camporee in a Bag" delivered to your home. Each bag has supplies for a family of four (two adults and two kids). Inside you will find many things to enhance your Camporee experience including:
- Supplies for Paracord bracelet making craft (2 kits)
- Camporee Challenge Card Set (1)
- Dinner Mystery Ingredient
- Microwave Popcorn for Closing Campfire (2 bags)
- Glider for Glider Challenge (2)
- 2 Vouchers for the Great 2020 Virtual Camporee Event Patch
If you have more then two kids that will be participating you can add additional supplies for $5 a child. For any families wishing to order the Camporee in a Bag but do not live in the Three Fires Council boundaries (DuPage, DeKalb, Kane, Kendall Counties and School District of U-46), there is a $15 shipping fee in addition to the cost.
FOR IN-COUNCIL, YOU MUST REGISTER BY MONDAY MAY 11TH TO RECEIVE YOUR CAMPOREE IN A BAG ON TIME. Camporee in a bag purchase made after May 11th can not be guarantied to arrive in time for the Camporee. However, all digital content will remain available after the event.
