What is a Camporee?
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 patter of rain on many tents at night. It’s the ripple of wind-blown flags in the morning sun. It’s catching the idea of teamwork in a patrol. It’s learning to carry out an order to help the team succeed.
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.
A camporee serves the Troop by integrating new Scouts into the patrol method, in a fun series of competitions. It’s the “shake-down cruse” to get a troop ready for Summer Camp. Don’t let your Scouts miss this exciting weekend event.
