Gateway Fall Camporee
October 10-12, 2014 - For All Webelos, Boy Scouts, Ventureres, & Varsity Scouts
The Fall Camporee is a special event in our district each year. Units will camp out over the weekend, Friday-Sunday. Webelos are expected to camp with a Troop. During the day, Patrols/Dens will participate in activities that are based upon an International games theme. Though it has not been confirmed at this time, there may be an opportunity to perform some type of conservation work.
Location: The Camporee will be held at Jackson Lake State Park. The estimated drive time from the Arvada area is 1 1/2 hours. 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. The campfire program should be over at 8:30 P.M.
Registration and Fees: There will be registration at the September and October Roundtable and at the Scout office, or on-line until Oct. 9th. Cost is $15.00 per participant. After Oct. 9th, and on the day of the event, the cost will be $20.00 per participant. Everyone who attends must pay this registration fee. There are no refunds, but the fee can be transferred to another person who is attending. The message here is pre-register!!!
Even though Webelos are to camp with troops, the Webelos are to register separately--by pack, but designate on their form which Boy Scout Troop they will be camping with. Please bring your payment receipt when checking-in at the Camporee Headquarters (HQ). If you are going to be at the camporee for Saturday only, the fee is $13.00 per person. This will ensure the Packs receive their patches, ribbons and medical forms upon departure.
Each Boy Scout unit is asked to provide at least one adult to assist in staffing events.
