WEBELOS Camporee

camporee

WEBELOS are required to attend at least one event with the Troop before advancing at the Blue & Gold banquet next year. There are only 2 Camporees offered – one in the spring, and one in the fall.

The cost of this camping trip is $10 for scouts, and $2 for parents.  This is a scout/parent only adventure, so no siblings this time.  Information, schedules, and health forms can be found in this packet.  Each scout and parent must fill out part A and B of the health form before arriving at the campsite.  A doctor’s signature is not required for this event.  The forms will be collected and kept together for inspection.

We are aware that this Camporee is in conflict with the Stone Mountain camping trip, but we would strongly suggest you make plans to attend.

stmo_bluesky3April 8-9th
2:00 pm

Pack 171 has a camping trip planned to Stone Mountain, NC. We will be camping at Stone Mountain State Park which is about an hour and a half north of Mooresville. This is a family friendly camp out so parents and siblings are welcome. Families should plan to bring their own tents and other camping equipment. The pack will provide dinner on Saturday night and breakfast on Sunday for $5 per person.

We are planning to go for a hike on Saturday after everyone gets their camp set up, and there will be activities and roasted marshmallows around the fire Saturday night.  After breakfast on Sunday we can do another hike, or there is good trout fishing in the area.

Make plans to join us now. See you there!

The Gemstone District Day Camp will be held June 12th to 16th at Van Hoy Campground in Harmony (about 12 miles north of Statesville).
