Yolano District Spring Camp-O-Ree 

& Venturing Encampment

   Your Troop or Crew is invited to join in the Spring Camp-O-Ree & Venturing Encampment for our Yolano District.  It will be held April 24, 25 & 26, 2020 at Timm Family Ranch.


We are celebrating 100 Years of Scouting in Northern California as the Golden Empire Council turns 100.  We will follow this theme in our troop gateways, events, menus and program. This gives you HUGE flexibility. Pick a unit theme such as a decade. Or pick a component of the GEC such as our summer camps. Or the changes in equipment from 1920 to the present. Or a GEC activity such as training. Then plan your gateway, dress, menu and events around your unit theme

  • We'll have the traditional events of the patrol competitions, Order of the Arrow Dance Team & Callout Ceremony, Saturday Campfire, Map & Compass Course, cooking contest, service project, and more.
  •  Friday evening will feature OA Dance and Callout Ceremony. Saturday evening has the Scout’s Campfire with skits and songs plus event awards.  Our event ends Sunday morning with an Interdenominational Service.
  • Water: This is a dry camp. Bring ample water for two days. Due to fire hazard we won’t have ground fires. Gas fired cooking stoves and raised charcoal grills will be allowed with the usual safety precautions.
  • Gateway: The gateway for each Troop’s site may be of a traditional design, poles, lashings, decorations, signs and so forth.  Follow your unit’s theme or the 100 Year Anniversary of the Golden Empire Council.

The cost is only $10 for Scouts, Leaders & Camp-O-Ree staff members. 

The Camp-O-Ree location is 7975 Timm Road, Vacaville, CA. This 3,100-acre ranch is located about six miles south of Winters at the western end of Allendale Road off Highway 505, approximately 15 miles west of Woodland and Davis.

Venturing Encampment:             

The Venturing Officer’s Association and the GEC Venturing Committee are hosting a new event this year, Venturing Encampment: Jumanji, taking place during Yolano District’s Camporee (Venturing will have its own separate program). Venturing Encampment begins with check-in on Saturday morning at 9:00AM and ends after the interfaith worship service on Sunday morning. With a Jumanji Jungle Adventure theme, there will be fun team activities and opportunities for different crews across the council to meet each other. There will also be a post-campfire potluck social on Saturday night. We ask each crew to bring something to share with everyone. Please read the Venturing Encampment Guide for all the details about this exciting new event.
