Spring Camporee

2014 Columbia-Montour Council

Spring Camporee

The Spring Camporee for 2014 will be held at the Bloomsburg Airport May 2-4, 2014. We will be camping at the airport. Saturday will be a split day with half of the time spent earning the Aviation Merit Badge and the other half doing a special service project– helping to build Kidsburg at the town park. THIS YEAR WE WILL NOT BE GIVING AIRPLANE RIDES. We will be able to complete the merit badge without a ride. We must abide by rules set up by Kidsburg in that only people over 14 years of age can be on the actual building site. Scouts younger than that can perform support duties, but at a different location (maybe right next to the construction site – I do not know at the present).

For this type of planning, I will need to know if your unit will be attending the camporee and, if so, how many and what ages for the scouts. Can you determine if you are going to attend and who will be attending with their ages? Please have someone e-mail that information to, so that we can get a plan together. Thanks.
