Notes from the Camping Committee

Here is a follow up on Fall Camporee.

 

Note that the Catapult or Trebuchet can be built of any modern materials if you wish. This is engineering not pioneering.

 

All scouts will be required to carry a day pack with 10 essentials plus six. A Scout will be chosen from EACH Patrol during the day to produce these items.

 

Each patrol will need to bring a SKIT IN A BOX to be traded to another Patrol. The box will have exactly 5 items of their choosing. Please tape and seal the box with your name and Patrol so it can be returned to you

 

We are giving away a Garmin Vista to a lucky Scout at Camporee.

District Scout Show!

monkey_bridgeWhat:  The Lewis and Clark District Scout Show!

When:  September 9-10, 2016. Show begins 9am on 9/10

Where:  ExpoPark (the Fairgrounds)

Who:   All of the Packs, Troops and Crews in the Lewis and Clark District!

Troops and Packs are all invited to camp overnight at the Expo Park for our annual Scout show.  For those needing an extra night of camping for rank advancement, camping merit badge, etc. this is a great opportunity to do so.  No open fires will be allowed, but we will have a lot of fun anyways.

Scout Show Event chair Tami Lukas would like all of the units to do something individual to their unit so that the public can get an idea of what is offered.  The Order of the Arrow will be doing concessions.

On Friday night Troops and Packs will be helping to build a monkey bridge.

For any questions please contact Tami Lukas, event chair at 406-564-5344.

IMPORTANT SPECIAL 2017 JAMBOREE BULLETIN FOR THE MONTANA COUNCIL

2017_National_Scout_JamboreeThe national Scout jamboree is a gathering, or jamboree, of thousands of members of the Boy Scouts of America, usually held every four years and organized by the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Referred to as “the Jamboree”, “Jambo”, or NSJ, Scouts from all over the nation and world have the opportunity to attend.

Jamboree’s are considered to be one of several unique experiences that the Boy Scouts of America offers in the tenure of a Scout.

The Montana Council is in the process of selecting Scouts from all over Montana to form two troops of four patrols and a venture crew it is important to sign as soon as possible to insure your spot at the Jamboree.

A Summary of Changes and what to expect from your 2017 Jamboree experience

  1. Program Most jamboree activities will be open, allowing participants to go where they like and then spend as much (or as little) time in a particular venue. The exception will be zip lines and canopy tours which must be pre-scheduled because of capacity limitations.
  2. Shuttles service for One bus will constantly shuttle between The Barrels (shooting), The Bows (archery) and a rest and relaxation area where Technology Quest was located in 2013. Another bus will run a loop around Adventure Valley and will serve the Big Zip landing, The Rocks (climbing), The Ropes (challenge courses), and Low Gear (mountain biking).
  3. Unit-based river While still available as an extra-charge option at the 2017 Jamboree, scheduling will be by units and not by individuals.
  4. More transparent wait An on-line system is being created to keep all participants informed on the expected wait times in activity areas.
  5. Revised shows For 2017, rather than a stadium opening show, each base camp will have an event in its headquarters area on the evening of arrival day to allow participants to get acquainted and prepare for the week ahead. The first stadium event will be the show on Saturday evening. A closing stadium show will occur on the final night of the jamboree. During the week, daily activities and special events will fill the stadium. A “base camp bash” will be presented on a different night in each of the five base camps.
  6. New and expanded STEM Quest area. The new STEM Quest area will be located adjacent to The Pools. As in 2013, each unit will be assigned to visit STEM Quest on a specific half-day to maximize participation. There will also be a variety of STEM-related exhibits in Scott Summit Center and a “Science Behind the Sport” program will be active at selected adventure
  7. Expanded military engagement. A new military display area is being created that will feature an array of military equipment for participants to visit and learn more about our military services.
