District Camporee 10/12-14/07
Friday, 10/12: A few troop members showed up to spend the first night at the camporee. Those that did claimed their camping ground and pitched their tents.
 Saturday, 10/13: The rest of the troop members arrived today and the fun commenced! Until noon, the scouts practiced survival skills by building a shelter using only their ten essentials and other scanty materials.  After this, they engaged in little challenges; such as: orienteering, knot tying, etc… One additional activity was competing against troop 471 in Ultimate. Sadly, we suffered a humiliating defeat.
The cub scouts came after dinner and the campfire was lit. But this campfire did not end the day. Instead, they played a massive game of Manhunt before going to bed.
 Sunday, 10/14: After breakfast, everyone broke camp and left for home.
