Cost The cost of this camporee has risen as a result of an increase in utilities and insurance. This year the cost is a low, low price of only $4.50 for each person attending. It is my desire to keep the cost as low as possible. Daytime visitors and special guests are exempt.

Rules There are a few rule changes that need to be addressed: Due to insurance changes, animals (Dogs, Cats, Fish, Unicorns, Etc.) are NOT allowed on this campout or on the campground. Visitors are welcome but not their animal friends. Garbage will need to be separated into three parts: Plastic – rinsed and empty – no lids please Aluminum - rinsed and empty All other Trash This extra step will be required to keep the cost down. This is also a great way to teach our Pathfinders to be good stewards of our environment. Please plan to bring containers for each type of recyclable item. Each Club is asked to bring Bathroom Tissue and paper towels for your club.
