20th Anniversary Celebration Camporee and Webelos-o-Ree
October 19-21, 2018
Gunston Hall,10709 Gunston Rd, Lorton, VA 22079
We will be camping at Gunston Hall to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the creation of Colonial, Old Dominion, and Patriot Districts from the great George Washington District, and to remember that great district from which we came. Scouts and Webelos will celebrate by participating and competing in fun activities from the days of George Washington and from Scouting’s fun and adventure.
Scout Troops and Venturing Crews will be camping. Webelos will be visiting on Saturday to participate in the activities and campfire, and to visit camps upon invitation. Scout Troops and Venturing Crews are challenged to set up a campsite gateway that that honors and tells something about George Washington, or Colonial times, or the Old Dominion, or Patriots such as George Mason, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock, Paul Revere, Thomas Pain, John Adams, or James Madison. The gateways will be judged as part of the campsite judging by the Commissioners.
Former members/alumni of the Great George Washington District, to include George himself, will be visiting and recognized at the campfire,
There will be a variety of fun activities for all Scouts and Webelos to participate in such as archery, BB gun shooting range, tomahawk throwing, climbing wall, horse shoes, marbles, lashing, pancake cooking, surveying, relay races, nail driving, hatchet chopping, STEM challenges, and many more – up to 18 in all. There will also be some opportunities for Scouts to tour George Mason’s mansion and opportunities for all to see Archeology in action.
