2018 Fall Camporee Host Units:
It is time to start thinking about Fall Camporee 2018!
As you probably know, your troop is one of the host units for the upcoming fall camporee, including Troops 174, 303, 330, 409, 589, and 702. I have included the Host Unit Schedule from our website’s camping page.
The theme for Fall Camporee 2018 is “Horse Ranch Campout”. The last time we did a similar camporee was in the spring of 2012. We had over 400 people attend http://www.lakeminnetonkadistrict.org/2012-spring-camporee-river-valley-ranch-may-28-30-2012-results-and-photos/ . It was the scouts from host Troop 330 that contacted the district through their Scoutmaster, Scott Jesse, to request a camporee related to horseback riding. After some discussions with Scott, I contacted the stables we used last time. Once again River Valley Ranch will host our camporee and let us use their facilities for horseback riding and camping overnight. They will even provide us with a professional horse show on Saturday!
The first camporee planning meeting will at the Excelsior Public Library, Thursday, May 10, 2018. Time: 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM. At the meeting the plan will be to establish a framework and schedule for the camporee and decide what activities to include at camporee.
Here is a copy of the promotional article that was posted on the district website and in the Sunday Newsletter http://www.lakeminnetonkadistrict.org/fall-camporee-2018-horse-ranch-campout-oct-12-14-2018-save-the-date . The camporee is October 12-14, 2018.
I hope to see you at the planning meeting and if you are unable to attend, you may call in using your telephone, teleconference 781-448-4248 Pin #28391.
