Seeking Camporee MCs

To Troop Adult Leaders and Volunteers,

For the Boardwalk Camporee, we are seeking outgoing, energetic scouts to serve as MCs.

We ask that all scouts who are interested please email me (mr.palermo@t137.org) their name, troop, and a short VIDEO bio about themselves as well as describing why they would be a great MC. They may send the video file directly or send the video link from an online forum.

All of those interested should send their information by September 18th.

We encourage those pursuing the Communications Merit Badge to apply.

Yours In Scouting,
