The Valley District, would like to invite you to attend the 2013 Valley District Camporee. This year’s event will be held at Camp Tahosa in Ward, Colorado. The theme of this event is “Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout?”
Troops will camp out Friday and Saturday night. When arriving or departing all units MUST check in and out at Headquarters (in the barn in the meadow area). Scouts and Scouters attending for the day will arrive on Saturday morning and spend the day, including campfire, if they so choose. All day visitors MUST check in and out at Headquarters.
On Saturday, Scouts in patrols will participate in events based on the theme “Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout?” The events are based on competition between a unit's Scouts and Scouters. They are simple tests of Scoutcraft and athleticism. These competitions will be scored based on the patrols’ overall performance. Each patrol should be approximately 6 Scouts (including one 2nd-year Webelo (Webelo-2) to insure that all Scouts have the opportunity to participate in each event. The patrol method is a team effort, so patrols that work together will excel. The culminating event for this camporee will be a patrol obstacle course. This obstacle course will utilize traditional Scout skills. In order for a patrol to earn an award they MUST turn in their COMPLETED patrol card. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Make your plans and come show your best at this year’s “Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout? Camporee. We would like to extend a special thank you to the Scouts and Scouters who have worked so hard to create this event.
