Boy Scouting

Schedule of Boy Scout Activities


Boy Scout Camping (September - May)

For more Boy Scout Resident Camp opportunities, click HERE.

Camp at CRE is filled with fun and exciting adventure for Scouts of all ages. Our 877 acres of majestic forest in the northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia provide an unlimited supply of opportunities to make your unit’s stay at CRE an experience of a lifetime. Program is the cumulative total of all that a Scout does, sees, and learns during summer camp.

While we encourage each Scout to work toward advancing by earning merit badges and fulfilling rank requirements, we must, however guard against this becoming the primary purpose of camp. Instead, we need to work together to:

  • Strengthen boy leadership.

  • Build troop and patrol spirit.

  • Help each individual scout to have fun to learn, and to develop character

Fall Camporee (hosted by Shawnee District) October 16-18

In the Boy Scouts of America, districts hold a Camporee 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.

This year's Fall Camporee is going to be held at Clarke County Fairgrounds.  For more information and/or to register, click HERE.
