Troop 88 Fall Camporee
We are opening up this camporee to families so that parents can attend with their scout if they like. We are also opening this camporee up to Webelos looking to join Boy Scouts with Kevin Elliot heading up that aspect. The Webelos will be joining us on Saturday morning.
Due to the compressed nature of preparation for this camporee and COVID protocols, leadership will be providing all of the meals for this campout. Don Tomsic and I are working on meal logistics/preparation.
If you are going, please let me know via email.
We will have a breakout on Tuesday, September 15th on the final details of the campout. We will provide Saturday’s breakfast, lunch and dinner (Don’s terrific pulled pork BBQ with sides) plus Sunday’s breakfast.
We will be meeting at PEPC at 5:00 PM on Friday, September 18th with a planned departure of 5:30 PM. Please come prepared with dinner either in your stomach or in a bag for eating on the road as we will not be stopping for food. We should arrive at PV around 6:30 with enough time to set-up before dark. We have reserved two (2) campsites on the top of the mesa so that we have plenty of room to spread out for social distancing. We should be back in Parker around noon on Sunday.
All participants will need to have BSA medical forms A&B in order to participate. The following is a link to a fillable PDF form for your use: BSA Med Form
Due to COVID protocols, scouts will not be able to sleep in a tent with anyone other than their family member. We will be using social distancing in the camp and we will be wearing masks when appropriate.
The leadership team is working on activities for Saturday. We are planning on working and completing the fingerprinting merit badge as an activity. We will also be doing camporee type competitions and will have time to explore the crevices area.
We are planning on having a propane fire ring on Saturday night.
Cost for this campout is $30 per person. Everyone will need to plan on bringing their own camping gear including a chair to use.
Let the leadership know if you have any questions. email@example.com Please email me by Sunday, September 13th if you are planning on coming. We appreciate everyone’s flexibility with the planning of this fall camporee. We want to get out to get some more camping in this fall and even with COVID restrictions…it will be a great time.
