Camporall (Cub Scouts BSA):
Camperall is Chain Bridge’s largest event with an average of 1,700+ adult volunteers and Cub Scouts participating in FUN activities at Camp Snyder. The idea behind this event is to provide a variety of age-appropriate shooting sports, STEM activities, crafts, and games for our Cub Scouts.
Trainings for Cub Scout adult volunteers are also offered throughout the day for anyone looking to receive additional or position specific training.
When: September 28, 8 AM to September 29, 11 AM
Theme: “Let the games begin”.
Yes, it’s Camporall time again. That’s our theme (above) and it means we’re going to have lots of games as well as the fun activities you expect at Camporall. Of course, we’ll have BBs, Archery, our climbing wall, and something cool to dig up at the “Big Dig”. To stick to the theme, we’ll also have kick ball, ga-ga ball, and STEM challenges for your Dens. How about “Kingdom Lawn Game”? Games for your brainiacs? Yeah, sure. We’ll have 20 Sets of Chess running (well, operating) in the dining hall, as well as a cool Chinese card game (24). This is such a great event to kick off your Cub Scout year and I hope you’ll join us!
Worth noting: If you were with us last year, I know you had a good time, except for the lack of sufficient water pressure for the toilets to handle the very large crowd we had in camp. We won’t have that problem this year. We’ll have about 60 port-a-potties on site for the event. We’ll have 10 at each shower house and another 10 to 20 scattered around camp. Handwashing stations too. Eventually that water pressure problem will be fixed, but not in time for this years’ event.
Packs – let us know if you’re participating. Best practice is to have families register online, as they have the past 10 years. Deadline to register will be Wednesday September 25, midnight. You and your families will have the option to register for Saturday only or for overnight in a campsite. Campsites and BB times will be assigned by Thursday September 26 in the afternoon.

Campsites: We expect to have some optional campsites available – to help ease the crowding in the established campsites. We also expect to re-run the Webelos (AOL) Cubs through the Scout Troop introductions, as we did last year. How can Packs or Troops Help? Several Packs and a half dozen Troops have helped staff our program. More help is always welcome. Talk with Dave or Scott about how you may be able to support one of our games, or a craft activity, or other activity for this event. Why? This event is a terrific starting point for your Cub Scout year. It’s great for the Cubs, as well as the parents to get a good look at how much fun their Cubs are about to have.
