Gateway Fall Camporee
“To Serve and Conserve”
October 11-13, 2013 - For All Webelos Boy Scouts And Venturers
The Fall Camporee is a special event in our district each year. Units will camp out over the weekend, Friday-Sunday, and Webelos are expected to camp with a Troop. During the day, Patrols/Dens will participate in activities that are based upon a Conservation theme for half of the day and fun activities for the other half.
In keeping with tradition of conservation on a camporee after our Council Camporee, we will have an opportunity to do conservation work at Camp Cris Dobbins and Camp Dietler, along with having fun activities.
Location: The Camporee will be held at Camp Cris Dobbins at Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch (PV). Please DO NOT arrive at camp before 3:00 PM Friday. Units should plan to depart by 10:30 AM Sunday. Units that need to leave on Saturday should try to plan on staying through the campfire program, Saturday evening.
Registration and Fees: There will be registration at the September and October Roundtable and at the Scout office, or on-line until Oct. 10th with a cost of $15.00 per participant. After Oct. 10th, and on the day of the event the cost will be $20.00 per participant. This is to encourage units to pre-register!!! Register here for the Gateway Camporee.
Even though Webelos are to camp with troops, we want the Webelos to register separately, by pack, but designate on their form with which Troop they will be camping. Please bring your payment receipt when checking-in at Camp Cris Dobbins Headquarters building. If you are going to be at the camporee for Saturday only, the fee is $11.00 per person.
EACH BOY SCOUT unit is to provide at least one adult to assist in staffing events.
PROGRAM ACTIVITIES: Based upon the theme, we are still finalizing the events but you can be assured there will be those that are fun as well as challenging.
