June 3-5, 2016« More activities from 2016
We had warm and sunny weather both days at Camporee this year. We were at a new location (Royal Arch Park in Maple Valley) and had much lower attendance overall. We ran the new knife throwing station which was a big hit. They had us keep it open during the afternoon during the midway entertainment too. Another Troop from Green River ran the A-Frame race. We took first place in the A-Frame and 2nd place in the Dutch Oven cook-off for the dessert, winning a Dutch Oven for the Troop. We won some other activities too.
We were well prepared and organized for leaving right after closing on Sunday. This made up for the 2 hours it took us to leave the church in Friday evening. We also need a better way of getting people back to the church Sunday afternoon to clean and put away the gear. – MHG
