Camporee - The Mystery of Hell's Gate
April 13-15th, 2018 @ Camp Constantin
Only for Boy Scouts, this event is held each spring to test their skills, character, and leadership. Run and staffed by the District's Order of the Arrow Makade Aki Chapter and adult volunteers, Boy Scout patrols compete to win the District’s Eagle trophy and bragging rights for the next year. After a full day of competitive themed events, all participants share in the community dinner followed by the OA’s mystical “calling out” ceremony around a blazing campfire. Sunday morning after the Scouts Own service, the coveted Eagle trophy is awarded to the winning Patrol. For more information & registration click here.
