Camporee

April 28 - 30, 2017

Tellepsen Scout Ranch
3450 County 317
Navasota, TX 77868

Camporee is a weekend camp out for troops. Patrols compete in various competitions and are judged on leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration and Scout spirit.  The Iron Horse Chapter of the Order of the Arrow will be hosting the Iron Horse camporee. LDS units can leave on Saturday night.

Every troop must send a representative to the April 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.

Registration

The registration fee is $15 per Boy Scout, $7 per adult and $5 shooting fee per participant in the troop shoot. Registration is done by the troop leadership.
