Montana Council Camporee 2018

Over the weekend Scouts and Scouters from our district attended the 2018 Montana Council Camporee. We spent the weekend in Townsend with Troops, Packs, and Crews from all over Montana! There were so many awesome things to try that even the rainy weather couldn’t put a damper on the fun this weekend! The woodworking tent had us building walking sticks, carving, and even branding some logs. There was an obstacle course, helicopters, and virtual reality. We, the Lewis and Clark District, brought the most popular activity: the Gaga Pit!
I would like to say thank you to all of the volunteers who made this event possible. Our Order of the Arrow Chapter, Ne-I-yahw, was hard at work all week as were many district volunteers. The Silver Beaver Council taught scouts to tie woggles, while the Camping Committee did a wonderful job smoking fish – and they even gave away fishing poles to three lucky scouts. Thank you all for your tireless work and dedication. You made all of us proud.
The best part of my weekend, where I had the most fun, was visiting all the Lewis & District units. Thank you all for being so welcoming and letting me be a part of your troops, even if only briefly.
We all came home with some great memories, new friends, and more than a few stories. So if you missed this
year’s Camporee, keep your eye out for the dates for the next Council Camporee (tentatively scheduled for 2022).
In the meantime, I have no doubt that all of us who were lucky enough to attend would love to regale you with tales from the great weekend we spent in Townsend.
And finally, a big thank you to Mary Matelich, Montana Council Vice-President for Public Relations and her team for capturing so many amazing photos and videos at the event, including the ones in this post.
