Cades Cove District Spring Camporee
April 23, 2021 - April 25, 2021
Dear Scouts, Scouters, Ships, and Venturers of the Cades Cove District,
The District Camping and Outdoor Promotions Committee would like to invite all Scouts BSA Units, Venturing Crews, and Sea Scouting Ships to take part in the 2021 Spring Camporee at Fort Loudon State Park.
The theme is “Hike-o-ree.” Scouts should prepare for first class outdoor requirements.
Events will include first aid, fire building, 6 man knot rally, lashings, school yard compass course, and map reading.
Each patrol will begin the morning at a starting point near the site and will hike the trails throughout the day stopping at different activity stations.
The events will encompass Scout Spirit, leadership, and attributes of the Scout Law. The Scout Oath and Law will guide all activities, events, and individual behavior.
Units will visit other Units as Patrols. Patrol flags should be carried and displayed during the Camporee. Again, the Camporee events are not limited to Scouts BSA only. Venturing Crews and Ships are invited to attend and participate as well.
We will be following all current Covid-19 restrictions. This will include pre-check in temperature checks and masks must be worn at all times.
The cost of the Camporee will be $10 per youth participant and $5 for adults. This will cover the cost of the Camporee, a patch, camping and site usage fees, program supplies, and recognitions. Preregistration is required and a form is included in this package. Please note the deadline for preregistration is Thursday April 22, 2021.
The Saturday night campfire will feature a call out ceremony for the Order of the Arrow. Don’t forget to bring chairs or blankets to sit on and flashlights for the walk back to your campsite. Each unit will need to prepare a skit. Not all units will get to perform at Campfire. Parents and siblings are invited and encouraged to attend the campfire.
We look forward to a great weekend of camping and the next “Best Camporee Ever!”
Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
