Mission Possible 2019
The Western Massachusetts Council Program Committee is pleased to coordinate the Fall 2019 camporee at the Horace A. Moses Scout Reservation focusing on the challenges and adventure that the Boy Scouts of America offers. This camporee is open to all Scouts BSA Troops, Venturing Crews and Explorer Posts.
Mission Possible 2019 will be showcasing many of the activities that are available at Moses, including the climbing tower, shooting sports ranges (rifle, shotgun, archery), boating (canoes and kayaks), ATVs and mountain bikes, pioneering area, axe throwing range and more. These events will be featured in competitive events during the day on Saturday. Scouts BSA patrols will compete in two categories of Mission Possible teams, Trainees (young patrols ages 11-13) and Adventurers (older patrols ages 14-17), for prizes. Venture Crews and Explorer Posts will be invited to compete as Adventurers.
In addition to the competitive events, the patrols, crews and posts will be gathering pieces of the puzzle that will be assembled during a gathering on Saturday evening, revealing the mission made possible by Scouting. See the event guide below for details.
The fee for all participants is $12, payable in advance.
The fee includes the cost of materials needed for the programs and events, awards, and special features.

The Event Guide is for Senior Patrol Leaders, Patol Leaders, Crew Presidents and Explorer Presidents and contains all of the details of the activtities for the camporee.
Arrow of Light Participation
We have been receiving questions about Arrow of Light Cub Scouts participating in the camporee to meet the requirement of attending an outing with their prospective Scouts BSA troop. A unit can bring these Cub Scouts with them but please understand that two of the activities in particular (Tomahawks and 22-rifles) are not allowed by the BSA Guide to Safe Scouting for Cub Scouts, so the Arrow of Light Scouts cannot be the members of a patrol that will compete in those activities.
Register using the form below. Registration opens on August 5 and closes on Tuesday, October 22.
