Reach for the Moon! Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing at this year’s Fall Camporee

The Camporee Page is Live!

Check out the Fall Camporee Page for information on all the activities, program, and other key information for the Camporee.

Friday through Sunday, October 11-13, 2019

Sibley County Fairgrounds, 801 W Chandler St, Arlington, MN 55307.

Neil Armstrong was an astronaut and aeronautical engineer who was the first person to walk on the Moon. He was also a naval aviator, test pilot, and university professor. But first, he was a Scout.

Neil Armstrong didn’t stop at the 21 merit badges required for Eagle – he finished with 26—including the Scholarship, Aviation, Pathfinding, and Pioneering Merit Badges. Unfortunately for Neil though, the Space Exploration merit badge wasn’t created until 1965—the year he turned 35.

Join us for a Great Camporee with a focus on exploring aerospace and outer space! There will be competitions, merit badges and more! Plus, we’ll have a dessert cook-off featuring astronaut’s favorite flavoring… TANG!!  More details will be coming soon.

Thank you for your efforts to date and your commitment to putting on a great event for the youth in our district!

Price per Person – $15 (One price – all day Saturday or stay the weekend).

Check-in starts at 6:00PM Friday and the event runs through 9:00AM Sunday morning. All Scouts and their guests are invited.
