At the November 2018 roundtable, the district's Scout leaders voted to change the timing for district camporees to the Spring. The camporee on the schedule for October 2019 will therefore be rescheduled to April or May 2020.
They also decided that the next district camporee would be a return of the popular Blue and Grey Civil War camporee. This camporee has been held four times before - in 1993, 1997, 2007 and 2014, and it was a hit with the Scouts each time. Each participating troop will be assigned the identity of a real Civil War Regiment (information on the regiment will be provided when the troop signs up), and each patrol will represent a company in that regiment. At each camporee station, a Union company will compete head-to-head with a Confederate company - the winner will capture a company flag from the loser. Additional flags will be awarded to companies for attending noncompetitive stations and for scores in a quiz and mass game. The winning company will be the one with the most captured flags at the end of the day.
A date for the camporee will be set at the District Planning Day in January 2019, and full details will be available by next summer. Watch this page for developments!
There are no planned District Venturing / Exploring Activities at this time.
This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for your Scouts, Sea Scouts and Venturers - the World Jamboree hasn't been held in the USA since 1967, and probably won't be held here again for another 50 years. Participants at the 24th World Scout Jamboree need to be youth members of the BSA aged 14-17. Members 18 and older can apply to be contingent leaders or on the Jamboree staff as members of the Support Teams.
Applications are now being accepted for the US Contingent, the Rover Brigade (support team aged 18-24) and the International Support Team (IST) - see the US World Jamboree Contingent web page for information, and click on "Apply" for an on-line application system.
