March 29 - 31, 2019
Camporee is a weekend camp out for troops full of competition to test Scouting skills. Patrols compete in various competitions and are judged on leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration and Scout spirit. The Iron Horse and Phoenix District Chapters of the Order of the Arrow will be hosting a joint camporee. The event is being held at Camp Brosig (1893 Trenckmann Road, Sealy, TX 77474).
Patrols will compete in rank specific contests in archery, tomahawk throwing, fire building, first aid, pioneering, orienteering, and nature study. Troops will be competing in the grand skills relay. Scoutmasters will demonstrate their skills in a specialized cook-off. Saturday night will end the night at a wonderful campfire full of awards, songs, and skits.
Every troop must send a representative to the March roundtable to help plan the camporee. Every troop needs run a part of the camporee (e.g., competition, facilities). This year’s camporee promises to challenge the youth leadership, as well as stretching everyone else’s comfort zones. These events cannot happen without each Scout’s competitive spirit and participation.
The registration fee is $10 per Scout and $5 per adult. Registration is completed by the unit leadership. Members of the Order of the Arrow who are volunteering to run stations can attend free of charge; contact the chapter chief to volunteer to help.
Registration is a two-step process. Troops need to RSVP with an approximate head count for planning purposes by February roundtable. Additional Scouts and adults can be added before payment is made.

Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. Trained leaders impact the quality of programs, leader tenure, youth tenure, and a whole lot more. A trained leader is better prepared to make the Scouting program all it can be! Every Scout deserves a trained leader. See the council training schedule for a list of additional training offered around the council. For more information about training, contact Randy Bell.
