District Camporees

District camporees are a great way for Scouts to meet other Scouts from their communities.  District camporees are held in the spring, fall or both.  Camporees are filled with exciting activities for Scouts to aprticipate in while interacting with other units from the same area.  Visit your district's home page for information specific to your district.

District Klondikes

District klondikes are special winter camporees.  Eash district holds a klondike in January or February.  Scouts can test their winter camping skills and show off their Scouting abilities on cold, snowy days.  Some klondikes also coincide with earning the Polar Bear challenge, which involves sleeping outside in below-freezing weather.  Klondike information for each district can be found in fall on each district's home page.

Cub Scout Winter Camporees

Cub Scouts get to have fun in the winter, too!  Cub Scout winter events have age-appropriate outdoor winter activities for the youngest Scouts.  For more information on Cub Scout winter events, visit your district's home page.
