2016 Catholic Camporee
Thank you to all who attended and volunteered the 40th Annual Camporee back on March 11th - 13th, 2016
The Scouter's Guide for the event is linked at the bottom of this page.
It was held the Fifth Sunday of Lent at
Mecklenburg Scout Reservation
Vein Mountain Road
Due to scheduling and new fee structures at all regional BSA councils, we returned to Camp Grimes the same as 2015 and moved the fee to $25 per participant, including 3 meals on Saturday and a Camporee patch.
Camporee concluded with Sunday Holy Mass celebrated by Bishop Peter Jugis, following recognition of all Scouts and Venturers who earned the Religious Awards in the past year.
The theme for Camporee related to the declaration of Pope Francis calling for this to be a Jubilee Year of Mercy that began December 8, 2015, the 50th anniversary of the closing of the Second Vatican Council.
