Camporee Planning

Posted on Updated on

As we all know the Fall Camporee is fast approaching Friday, October 7, 2016 to Sunday, October 9, 2016.

We will have a planning meeting this Sunday, September 18, 2016 at 6:00 pm at St Luke’s United Methodist Church, 100 West 86th, Room N103-104, Indianapolis, IN 46260. Enter by Entry #7, turn left down the first hallway, third door on left. (If Entry #7 is locked, go to Entry #6, and turn left in corridor, then right down last hallway).

This will be our final planning meeting for the Camporee. All units should send a representative and have their event planned with rules and scoring. Remember ideas should have already been submitted to Fall Camporee Chair Brian Crow via email. Priority will go to units having the earliest date stamp, for any duplicated ideas.

Our Winter Camporee is scheduled for January 20-22, 2017. (We will have a new president at noon that Friday. I will let you determine whether that is good or bad.)

Our Spring Camporee is scheduled for April 21-23, 2017 at Ransburg Scout Reservation. There will be a strong emphasis on shooting sports. We will have NRA Instructors onsite to manage rifles and pistol shooting. We will plan on offering archery. Our goal is to have more opportunities to aim at targets that scouts get at summer camp.

These upcoming camporees may be discussed at the Camporee Planning Meeting, but the emphasis will be on the Fall Camporee.
