Saturday night dinner will be provided to all Scouts and leaders as part of the bicycling event. Please pre-register so that we can plan enough food for the camp wide dinner - we don't want you to go hungry after your ride!

Camping will be Jamboree style so bring you own tables & chairs (no picnic tables available). Troop bonfires on Friday night are allowed in elevated fire pits only. On Saturday night, a Camporee wide bonfire will take place with lots of skits, songs and fun as well as Culver's Custard Party to cap off the night's event.

Have Scouts that are not into Bicycling?    Cave of Mounds is within hiking distance and tours can be set up for a truly unique experience for those that choose not to bicycle for an added fee.

University of Scouting- November 4

The University of Scouting is a council sponsored event designed to be a day of learning and fun. It is a single day packed with a year's worth of fun, games, songs, skits, and new information for adults who want to provide the best Scouting program possible for their boys. This event includes topics of interest for Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Exploring and Venturing leaders. In addition to the many resources the day provides, participants have a chance to meet Scouters from all over our Council and complete supplemental training courses such as Safe Swim Defense, Safety Afloat and much more.  There are level-based classes offered for Commissioners which allow them to earn "degrees" at the University of Scouting.  Boy Scout and Venture Youth can attend the Den Chief training or the Introduction to Troop Leadership Skills, as well as other training sessions.

Wood Badge

Wood Badge is the ultimate personal and professional growth training program offered by the Boy Scouts of America; it is a national course curriculum delivered locally by our Council's volunteer staff. Wood Badge is about enhancing your leadership skills through hands-on experience, to help you take those skills back to your unit or District and put them to work to develop effective leaders and youth where you serve.  Wood Badge is Designed to be taken within the first 2 years of joining the BSA.

This comprehensive training course was started by Robert Baden-Powell to help leaders hone their skills, extend their understanding of the youth they lead and the adults with whom they work, and to reach new levels of personal growth and learning as Scouters.

Wood Badge is for all leaders that want to improve the Scouting program.This is the highest level of adult training in the BSA. We encourage all leaders to attend and refresh your batteries while building your leadership skills to enhance the program in your unit, District and Council. That means Den Leaders, Committee members, Varsity Team Asst. Coaches, Crew leaders, and everyone in between. Wood Badge is for you.

Course size is limited.

Session 1: January 26-28
