We Need YOU To Donate Items to the On-Line Auction!

The 7th Annual Scouting Legacy Online Auction is going to open for business on May 21.  This fun event has become an important fundraiser for our District and Council.

We need your help.  Items donated from our District support our activities.  Can you find items to donate to the auction?

Corporate donors of items and services receive valuable publicity.  In 2011, auction sponsors averaged more than 10 thousand impressions.

Popular items include restaurant gift certificates, scouting collectibles, camping gear and much more.  Do you have item to donate, or can you help arrange for items?

Lewis & Clark District Spring Camporee 2012

May 17-20 @ the Cobb Ranch

The Girl Scouts Scoutana camp area West of Augusta

3-23-2012 Release

The Camporee will be a little different this year. The Big Difference is that we will be giving Scouts instructions and demonstrations on basic outdoor Scout Skills in the morning (after flags). They will be having lunch in camp from 12:00 – 1:00. At 1:00 the afternoon competition will start and will be based on the morning instructions.

Each Scout should have a 6-8 foot walking stick or staff in addition to a plastic tarp approximately 8 foot x 10-12 foot in size. The tarp should be waterproof but, if it is not we will work around that.

Each Scout should also have their 10 essentials plus 6 items. Other than that prepare as you would for a regular camporee or camp out.

We will be releasing more information as we get closer to the Camporee as there are a number of items that we need to check out after we have a chance to check out the campsite.
