Northern Lights District 2014 Camporee

Every year, the district hosts a weekend event for local troops to show off their scouting skills in friendly competitions with each other - the Camporee. This year, the event will be held at Trevor Rees-Jones camp on April 4th through the 6th. The scouts have been planning for months to host the event and have chose the theme "It's a Scouting Life for Me!". As you can imagine, each event has a pirate theme.

There will also be a OA callout for recently elected members as well as a brotherhood walk.
