Council STEM Camporee

This page contains information about the event for Last Year but has been left here so you can see what the event was like.  Once information is available for this year’s event we’ll update this page with the appropriate details, add a sign-up form and send out the link to the Pack.  Stay tuned for more details!

Attention all Cub Scouts!

The Pennsylvania Dutch Council Camporee is scheduled for May 2-4 and Cub Scouts are invited to participate during the activities on May 3rd.  This year's focus is STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  There will be LOADS of exciting activities for the boys, including a Brush Bots competition.  

Additional details can be found on the Council Website.

Cost for Scouts is $20 (this includes registration, Camporee patch, Brushbot kit and dinner).  Cost for parents is $12.

There is also a Science Fair competition with prizes awarded!  You must register in advance - see 2014 Camporee Science Fair Guide and 2014 Camporee Science Fair Registration Form.

Please add your name to the list is you plan to go.  We need to submit formal registration to the council before April 4th.  You must sign in via Google in order to view and edit the list (see instructions for signing into the website for more details).

Additional Notes

We realize this will be a long day for the boys so we fully understand if you need to leave before the end. That said we will try to help the boys pace themselves through the day so they can last as long as possible.

Staying hydrated will be important. There will be water stations scattered throughout the park but everyone should have a water bottle.

The Camporee will go on rain or shine so bring rainwear if needed and sunscreen (A Scout Is Prepared!)

Check in time is 7:30 to 8:30 so please do not be any later than 8:30. The leaders will get us checked in.
