2019 Council Camporee

Over 500 Scouts and volunteers participated in the first Council Camporee in nine years with a theme of Scouting Around the World.  Units selected countries to represent and Scouts traveled to the different countries to participate in activities and learn more about countries.  Scouts were able to participate in additional activities provided by Scouts and different vendors.  The event kicked off Friday night with a concert from Brushville and ended Saturday night with a fireworks show.
