Virtual Camporee

Calling all scouts! Calling all scouts! It’s time to go camping! But wait, in social distancing, how do we do that? Well I have the answer for you! Cradle of Liberty Council is hosting a Virtual Camporee the weekend of May 15th-16th. Join us in camping in your backyard, or in your living room, just keep the smelly socks upstairs!

There will be a multitude of activities for cub scouts, older scouts, as well as adults and leaders. If you have a sibling that’s not a scout, let them join in the fun and try to recruit them. Here’s a little info on how this will work.

 

  • Friday Night at 7pm there will be an opening campfire hosted by the COL Venturing Officer’s Association (you may see some familiar faces performing!)
  • You can view the campfire as well as the opening colors (flag ceremony) at 8:30am, as a livestream on the council’s facebook.
  • Go to the Camporee website to see the day’s schedule
  • Click on the classes you wish to be apart of, register (for free!) in order to get sent the link for the zoom rooms!
  • During second period, at 10am, join myself, Ms. Avery, in a cub scout cooking class! I would love to see my 1776 scouts there, I miss you guys!
  • A parent guardian can send pictures to the Cub Scout Facebook page, or email the leaders, with permission to share on our Facebook. We want to showcase the scouts participating!
  • Closing scout’s own will be at 4pm, livestreamed on Facebook.
  • You do not need a Facebook account to view the live, just click the link above. You do not need a zoom account to participate, just click the link you get after registering.

I hope to see a bunch of the 1776 scouts at the camporee, if you have any questions, you can reach me at asytsma@cubscoutpack1776.org.
