Camporee Overview

 

The camporee program is based on traditional skills used by loggers and woodsmen.  Many of those skills are still used today.  Some of the skills that are no longer used are kept alive in woodsmen competitions across the country.  The competitions are held by professional woodsmen, collegiate teams, and folks who strive to keep our history alive.

The camporee program will give you the opportunity to learn these skills and then demonstrate you skill competing against other Patrols.
