Hey North Star Scouts! Get ready and be prepared for the most awesome race you’ll ever experience inside a camporee!
I would like to formally welcome you to North Star’s awesome Spring Camporee 2012! This Camporee, we’re doing something new. As this is the Awesome Race of Scouting, you will be finding your way around to the stations using compass coordinates. Your team must race against other teams to find and complete each station on your course. At each station you must work through the required tasks to get your clue to move you to the next station. Your goal is to race as fast as you can through the stations to win the race.
Our awesome race is Scout skill themed, so come prepared to work with all your knowledge of scouting skills. To do that, you will need to brush up on your skills in the weeks beforehand. Also, bring your Scout handbook and any other materials which will help you get through the various tasks. One of the most important things is to bring a compass so you can navigate the race!
Above all, even though this is a race, be respectful to your fellow racers and especially be safe! We will be camping right here in north county at Sunset Park, so be aware that we have to keep it extra clean because a scout leaves it cleaner than he found it. So make sure you’re respecting others and the park around you.
