Fall Camporee

Hello Everyone,

Attached is information about our upcoming Fall Camporee at Tomahawk Scout Reservation, which is open to all troops and crews.  We will be spending half of the day at the logging camp where Scouts will be able to participate in a number of activities including, spar pole, black smithing, candle making, and axe throwing.  The other half of the day will be spent shooting black powder rifle, playing disc golf, using the driving range, or enjoying the pioneering structures (black powder is the primary activity, but it won’t take half a day, so there are a number of other activities to choose from).  Cost is $20 per person, registration is on line at https://www.scoutingevent.com?dp2015fallcamporee.

For the adults we will also be offering an opportunity to take Outdoor Leader Skills (OLS) training on Saturday at the camporee, attached is the flier.  This training is required for all Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters to be fully trained.  It is also a good idea for any leader who goes camping with their troop to take this training.  Adults participating in this training will be camping with their troop, but will spend most of Saturday away from the troop, so you will need to plan accordingly for adult leadership.  Participation in the training is free for any adults attending the camporee, or $5 for anyone planning to come for just the day.  Registration information is on the flier.
