Penquis District Spring 2012

“Cinco de Mayo"! 

May 4 – May 6, 2012

Lake Sebasticook, North Newport

Hosted by Troop 63

PQ Spring Camporee

The 2012 Spring Camporee is all about the basics of Boy Scouting. The camporee will focus on the core skills and adventures that are symbolic of Scouting. The activities that have been chosen will challenge the boys in basic skills and games, where participation is all that’s required to have fun.

Scouting skills to practice are; Knot Tying, Lashing, Personal Fitness, Map & Compass, Fire Starting with Flint and Steel bow & Friction. All Scouts need to carry their Totin’ Chip and Firem’n Chit cards and be prepared to present them to the judges.

In addition to the theme events, as with all camporees, we encourage scouts to show pride in their troop and patrol. A “gateway” in keeping with the theme of "Cinco de Mayo" would be an excellent way to exhibit this pride, as well as defined patrol camp sites. Show off your troops scout craft by creating a camp gadget and demonstrating how it works. Nothing is too small—be sure the knots and lashes are done correctly. Remember your troop flag and encourage official uniforms. These things will be considered in the camp site inspection.

We will be looking for scout spirit in the boys, cleanliness in their activities and patrol camps and general patrol method. So dust off your patrol flag and carry them with you! Be Prepared, we may even ask to hear patrol cheers or yells while they’re in camp.
