Orange-Mawat District Camp Campbell Spring Camporee Expedition Specs May 3-5

NormanRockwellCamping

This year Mawat District and Orange District are combining to have a huge spring camporee filled with activities including a monkey bridge, canoe course, make your own ice cream, utensil-less cooking, and a flapjack relay.  Later in the day there will be a cook-off where Troop 505 scouts can put the skills they learned in the “Iron Chef” competition to good use.  The camporee will be held at Camp Campbell.   The camporee will provide scouts will ample opportunities to display “scout spirit” through patrol based competitions.  The 2013 Mawat-Orange District Camporee is shaping up to be a “scouting at its best” event.

Costs

Travel: tba

Lodging: $10 and includes Camporee fees and patch

Food:  $20

Miscellaneous

Scouts can bring money if they are interested in purchasing anything from the OA Outpost (snacks, etc)

Gear

The camporee has primitive camping so scouts need to prepare for anything.  The camping essentials listed on the Troop 505 webpage are a good start.  The troop will need to bring certain materials for competition at the camporee so scouts will need to decide which scout is responsible for bringing particular items.  Compasses, rope, cookware (for cook-off) are just a few things that Troop 505 will need for the camporee.
