Scout-Me-In TOO

for
Scouts BSA members

Golden Empire Council’s Family Scouting Task Force would like to
invite Scouts BSA members and their families to join us for
a weekend of scout skill development and camaraderie.

When:        Friday, August 16th, 4:00pm through Sunday August 18, 2019, 12:00pm

Where:       NorCal Adventure Area (ß GEC-BSA’s newest camp!)

                  15356 Oregon Hill Road, Dobbins, CA

Who:          All Golden Empire Scouts BSA Troops, Webelos Cub Scouts, their families and friends.   A special invitation is extended to experienced female and male Scouts BSA members interested in helping to teach basic scout skills or to help run an event.

                  Early registration is recommended no more than 250 people will be able to camp overnight

What          This is a tent camping event where each troop/group/family will cook on their own.  There is plenty of space to set up tents and cooking areas.  Potable water and flush toilets are available onsite (Do bring something to carry water).

Purpose:   ** To give our new Scouts BSA members the opportunity to be exposed to various scout skills and to get signed off on some of the requirements for the ‘Scout’ through ‘First Class’ ranks.

                  ** To share the joy of scouting with families and people who may like to join our scouting program.

 

Activities:

We plan to have a variety of activity stations that youth and adult participants can rotate through at their own pace.  The activities will include fire building, use of bladed tools (knives, axes, saws, etc.), rope work (knots and lashings), first aid, land navigation (maps, compass and GPS) and other skills required for rank advancement.
 

To sign-up to lead an activity:

We need adults who are willing to supervise activities and youth who are interested in running the activities (to give the youth leadership and instructional opportunities). In most cases we have the plan and materials for each activity, we just need the staff to run them.  You can sign up for an activity here:
