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.
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).
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
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
Individual registration is required for each adult.
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.

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
Location: White Oak Recreation Center
Lunch will be provided. Please bring your own labeled stuffed animal!
