This camporee is similar to going to King's Island or Disney World.  There are activity booths/sites ALL over the campsite and the scouts can go anywhere, anytime USING THE BUDDY SYSTEM.

Buddy's of 2 minimum but larger buddy groups can buddy too. NO SOLO WANDERING.

We do NOT return to camp for lunch.  There are lunch trucks all about the site, so bring money for this.

 

Each scout will camp in his own tent. No sharing (except brothers).   Bring your own tent, or use 1 of the troop tents
