  • Each troop will be setting up camp in usual Camporee format and provide their own meals

  • Attire - Class A or B during the day, Class A for Campfire in the evening

  • There is a water source at camp that was approved as potable last year. They will be testing it again
    before our event to ensure that it’s still potable. I will keep leaders posted but bringing at least some of your own water may be a good idea anyway.

  • Classes are selected during registration

  • Scoutmasters (or their designee) should register each scout in the troop that plans to attend

  • Some class sizes are limited and are on a first come, first served basis

  • Classes may fill up quickly. Avoid disappointment and register early

  • Be aware of prerequisites for some merit badge classes (see list). Please help your scouts prepare.

  • Troops should remember to follow YPT guidelines and have 2 deep leadership overnight. If female scouts are attending, please be sure to meet female leadership guidelines.
