The Goose Creek District Spring Camporee consists of two major events: a Patrol Challenge of several competition stations, and an Adventure Choice period for Scouts to explore challenging “High Adventure” program activities (additional fees apply). Each Unit has an assigned period for each event, so that everyone has equal opportunity for full participation. The Camporeee is designed for Scouts BSA Troops, Venturing Crews or Explorer Posts.
The Patrol Challenge is based on the traditional Scout Camporee where patrols compete in challenges to see who can best demonstrate superior scout skills. Patrols earn points at each patrol challenge, with additional points earned for patrols who perform skits at the evening campfire. Adventure Choice Activities are optional. Each participant may choose one Activity. Adult participation in the Adventure Choice activities is free.

Scouting for Food
Each November, Goose Creek Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA and their leaders take to the neighborhoods of Loudoun County in support of Scouting for Food. Scouts go door-to-door collecting non-perishable food items for families needing assistance within their local communities. Many log additional community service hours working in the collection sites, unloading vehicles and sorting the food donations. This has been a huge success over the years, with a 300% increase in food donation and delivery since 2001.
Goose Creek District Scouting for Food coordinator is Rebecca Makowski.
