Events at the Zombie Encounter Camporee

On Saturday, scouts from Troop 122 may participate in the following activities if they choose:

Ghoul Guard Gateway- Each unit will design a theme-based gateway to their campsite which will be judged on creativity and complexity. Points awarded 1-25. Gateway must be constructed by 10 AM Saturday morning.

Zombie Parade - will be for all scouts in Zombie costumes which will start at 7:30 pm Saturday evening. There will be ribbon for 1st , 2nd and 3rd place. If you would like to participate dress up in your best rendition of a zombie!

Scouting for Food - All scouts from troop 122 MUST participate in a scouting for food drive at the camporee. Please bring a couple of canned food items that will be collected by the camporee staff. Lack of participation by scouts going on the campout will result in a 2 hour service project. So please contribute to the scouting for food drive.

Each unit received a copy of their current Merit Badge Counselor List in their unit mailbox.
