Spring Camporee

Posted: April 3, 2014 by troop8fbcj in Uncategorized

We’re going off the grid! This weekend is the spring camporee for the Four Rivers District. The theme of this one is OFF THE GRID. Our scouts are going to camp as if an EMP event has occured and there is no electricity…meaning no phones…yikes!

They will learn to cook without any fresh foods…canned goods and dry goods, no coolers. They will learn about water purification, primitive fishing, making survival bracelets and putting together a bug out bag…
