Vulcan District Camporee

2017 Vulcan District Camporee is February 17-19, 2017

What could be more fun than hundreds of Vulcan District Scouts camping together for the weekend — enjoying the outdoors, bonfires, good camp cooking, and competing in Scout skill events for bragging rights?  If you have never attended the Vulcan District Camporee, this year’s event is one you will not want to miss.

Here is just a brief list of some of the features:

  • Friday Catfish Fry and Dutch Oven Dessert Cracker Barrel (adults only)
  • Webelos competitions
  • Boy Scout patrol and crew competitions
  • Backpack Cooking demonstration
  • Foil Cooking Cook-off
  • Wok Cooking demonstration
  • Dutch Oven Cake Cook-off
  • Dutch Oven Cook-off
  • Bonfire, Donuts and Hot Chocolate
  • concession stand

 Who can attend?

All Vulcan District units are encouraged to register for camping. Invite your family and friends to come hang out with us for the day to watch the Boy Scouts in action and sample some great Dutch oven, backpack stove and wok cooking. Grab lunch at our concession stand and enjoy a great day at Tannehill State Park watching the competitions and demonstrations.  Our convenient location, only a short drive from Birmingham, makes it a great day trip for the family.

This is a great opportunity to recruit!

Vulcan District units should invite their associated Webelos groups to join them as guests for the evening. Webelos Scouts can come out for the Saturday Webelos competitions, join their host troop for dinner and enjoy the fellowship around the evening bonfire after sampling donuts and hot chocolate.  Webelos Scouts and a responsible adult can camp at the invitation of a host troop on Saturday evening. Not only will this fulfill that last Arrow of Light requirement for an outdoor activity with a troop, but it will allow your prospective Scouts to see what Scouting fun is all about. There is no better opportunity to “see” Scouting than at Camporee!
