Camporees

A Camporee is many things - camping fun for boys, the thumping of hundreds of feet on the way to an evening campfire and the blue smoke from fires cooking stew or ham and eggs.  It's he patter of rain on many tents at night.  It's the ripple of windblown flags in the morning sun.  It's catching the idea of teamwork in a patrol.  It's learning to carry out an order you don't really like.  Typically, the Camporees involve competitions with events such as fire building, knot tying, first aid, emergency preparedness, pioneering or orienteering.  Some Camporees also integrate work on merit badges.  The Camporee may be centered around a central theme such as living history, horsemanship, aquatics or shooting sports.  Camporees often have a campfire program with awards and presentations, skits and songs.  They may also have a service project that helps the hosting facility.
