White Oak District - Spring Camporee

Posted By Marvin Arthur, Friday, February 28, 2014
Updated: Friday, April 11, 2014
The White Oak District Camporee is scheduled for April 25th through 27th.

This year we have been invited to the Piscataway Indian Museum and Cultural Resource Center, located at 16816 Country Lane, Waldorf, Maryland 20601.

We will use this wonderful opportunity to learn all about these native people right here in our neighborhood and in doing so we will have the opportunity to fully complete the Indian Lore merit badge (please bring a filled out Blue Card for each scout; we will fill out the requirements completed and get it signed by a registered counselor).

We are planning to learn about their culture, songs, games, food, and much more – not only through hearing about it, but also by getting involved in it. We are going to provide some Piscataway recipes for your meals and see what unit best prepares the meals. Friday night after your camp is established, we will start with a welcoming campfire where your learning will start. Saturday morning after your breakfast we will have an introduction to the Piscataway and your day’s events, including a tour through the museum. Saturday night we will have another campfire where we will practice some of the things we learned during the day and hear some Piscataway “campfire” stories. Sunday morning right after breakfast we will do our Duty to God and learn about the spiritual Piscataway. We need at two adults per attending unit to be assigned to our staff to help run this event

We will have a large open field for camping, fresh potable water and porta johns are available on the site. Please plan to carry out all of your own trash.

Individual registration is required for each adult.

Youth may be registered in groups of 5, 10, or individually. So if you have 18 scouts you can purchase 1 Ten (10) pack, 1 five (5) pack and 3 individuals for a total of 18 scouts.

We hope this helps to make registration easier than in the past.

Emergency Preparedness practice drill opportunity for older Scouts -- Sunday, Sept. 15

Posted By Michael Snyder, Thursday, September 05, 2013
Dear Scouts, Troop Leaders, and Parents/Guardians,

The Red Cross of the National Capital Area and the County Animal Response Team will be holding a shelter exercise September 15, 2013. The goal of this exercise is to practice setting up animal and human shelters in conjunction with each other, and registering humans and animals for each shelter.

Scouts participation is needed for the registration process. The youth will be assigned a “role” that will force volunteers to react like they would in a real-life situation. For example, one scout may have a service animal or another may not have any documents for their pet. The youth will be given their roles ahead of time. We’d like the youth to register their pet and themselves in the shelters and take note of the way in which volunteers reacted in each situation. The youth will also be fed lunch which is part of the Red Cross’ mass care duties.

Please direct any questions/concerns to Becky Zorn, Outreach Coordinator, Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security. We need 25 boys and slots will be filled on a first come first serve basis. Permission slips are necessary to register for the exercise. The youth may come early/stay late if they are interested in seeing the way the shelters are set up and taken down. Because the youth will need to fulfill certain roles, we are asking for Scouts age 14 and older.

Date: September 15
Time: noon-2pm
Location: White Oak Recreation Center

Lunch will be provided. Please bring your own labeled stuffed animal!
