Camporee is typically a weekend campout for troops. This year camporee will be a day only event. Individual patrols will compete in various competitions and are judged on leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration, and Scout spirit. Join us in a great Scouting tradition to experience the Soaring Eagle District Camporee. This year’s camporee will include the spider web, knot bar, tomahawk throwing, lashing a seven-knot tripod, fire building, first aid, an orienteering course, Dutch oven cooking, and more.
There will also be an Order of the Arrow call-out ceremony and closing campfire that evening. Troops are responsible for their own food, medical forms/first aid, and camporee roster.
Registration is done by the troop leadership. The registration fee is $26.50 per troop and is paid online with credit card, electronic check or PayPal. There is no onsite registration. Council refund policy.
Registration opens in March
Every troop must send a representative to the February and March roundtables to help plan the camporee. This year’s camporee promises to challenge the youth leadership, as well as stretching everyone else’s comfort zones. These events cannot happen without each Scout’s competitive spirit and participation.
