Fall Camporee Flyer 2018
Due to circumstances outside our control, we are unable to host our camporee at the horse ranch on the originally scheduled date.
The activities team has worked to identify the best date possible that will work for the ranch as well as avoid conflicts such as the Lake Minnetonka OA Chapter Conclave and various homecomings. While we know rescheduling is not ideal, we’ve tried to make the best situation possible for the youth in our district.
With the move to September 21st thru September 23rd, we will benefit from warmer weather, dryer conditions, more daylight hours, and perhaps most importantly, greater opportunities for our youth to participate in trail rides.
This is a great opportunity for new Scouts to participate in a fun activity for all! Make sure your Webelos, Arrow of Light Scouts, and Bears have the opportunity to attend this event.
Come join your fellow Boy Scouts, Venturers, and Webelos from Lake Minnetonka District for Fall Camporee 2018 – Horse Ranch Campout – October 12 – 14, 2018. The venue is located on 480 private acres in Carver, Minnesota, on the shores of the beautiful Minnesota River. This location is fantastic! There are dense woods, open fields, and secluded areas. In fact, it is considered one of the best trail ride locations in the Twin Cities!
We will continue with our popular carnival atmosphere where you can take advantage of the district’s preplanned merit badges and activities or units can create their own program and have some downtime.
Camp out Friday and Saturday night, or come out just for the day, and participate in an hour long trail ride, merit badge opportunities, a campfire program, hiking, fishing, other activities, including a professional horse show.
The host units for this event include Troops 174, 303, 330, 409, 589, and 702.
The theme is ‘western’ so dress and cook appropriately. In other words, hats, boots, and lots of beans in the Dutch oven is expected and appreciated!
