Camporee Details

The Camporee focuses on outdoor Scouting fun as embodied in the theme, “Outdoor Adventure Challenge.” This event is designed for Boy Scout Troops and Venturing Crews.

The Camporee consists of two major events: a Patrol Challenge of six events, and an Adventure Choice period, for Scouts to be able to explore challenging “High Adventure” program activities (additional fees apply).  Each Unit will have an assigned period for each event, so that everyone will have equal opportunity for full participation

All participants must register and pay the Camporee Fee online thru the NCAC website.  The Camporee fee is $24 per participant (all Youth and Adults) and includes all campsite and facility costs.

Adventure Choice activities are optional, each participant may choose one Activity each. Payment will also be processed thru this same NCAC website.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Adventure Choice activities are FREE for ADULTS but registration for your choice is still required on the website.
