2014 Fall Two-District Camporee (Root River and Heart of Milwaukee)

The Root River District is planning on joining with the Heart of Milwaukee District to put on a two-district Camporee in October! Here are some details so you can Save the Dates:

•             What: Two-District Camporee; Theme: Mission Impossible (with a zombie-twist!)

•             When: Sat. Oct 18 and Sun, Oct 19 (activities are primarily Saturday night; 7:00pm to 1:00am)

•             Where: Camp Quad (formerly Camp Erin or Camp Journal); Hwy 83 and County Q near Holy Hill

•             Estimated Cost: not finalized yet; but it looks to be under $12 per person (Units to provide own food)

•             Unit Responsibility: Each Unit (troop or crew) should contribute to the creation and running of one of the stations or act as Service Troop. More details will follow as to what kinds of stations we might have and the service work that needs doing.

For this event, the Camporee Committee is sponsoring a Patch Design Competition:

•             Can be 3- or 4-color

•             Must have text "2014 HOM+RR Camporee" on it somewhere

•             Winner will get free registration to the event and will have his/her name published in a future newsletter



Friends of Scouting

The 2014 Friends of Scouting campaign has been going great.  Thank you to all that contributed to such a worthy cause through your generous gifts.  A big thank you to all of the presenters who participated in the campaign. Through your leadership, we are able to provide funding for our district and youth. 

Matching Gifts:  If you noted your contribution as having an employer match, please ensure that the paperwork has been filled out correctly per your employer’s needs.  




Wow, Root River, way to go out there and fund your summer camp program through popcorn!  Please see the top COUNCIL sellers below.  We had a great sale from the Root River District with many of our youth and units being the top sellers for the Council.  Did you sell corn?  If not, you have another chance in fall. Don’t be left with a stack of melting candy bars or paper-thin pizza--get involved with the Council popcorn sale and fund your year this fall!
