Boy Scouting

Schedule of Boy Scout Activities


Camporees

In the Boy Scouts of America, districts or councils may hold a camporee once or twice a year. Typically, the camporee involves competitions, with events such as fire building, knot tying, first aid, emergency preparedness, pioneering, or orienteering.  Some camporees also integrate work on merit badges. The camporee may be centered around a central theme such as living history, horsemanship, aquatics, or shooting sports. Camporees often have a campfire program with awards and presentations, skits and songs. Camporees also may have a service project that helps the hosting facility.

Summer Camp

Boy Scouts can earn merit badges, learn and practice their Scouting skills, follow the Patrol method and work towards advancement while having a fun time swimming, climbing and enjoying the Virginia Mountains.
