Camporee is a weekend campout for troops around the district. Scouts in patrols compete in various competitions and are judged on leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration and Scout spirit.  

Activities this year will include competitions based on Scouting skills such as orienteering, knot-tying,  first aid, and patrol teamwork.  This year there will also be a shotgun competition. NRA-certified adults are needed (see "Event Volunteers" section).  There will also be a Scoutmaster shotgun shoot-off while the Scouts compete in a Gaga Ball Pit tournament.  A cobbler cook-off will be held in the evening, followed by the closing award ceremony filled with patrol-led skits and songs.  Due to anticipated traffic associated with the solar totality on Monday, troops will be able to leave Saturday evening, or early Sunday after a non-denominational interfaith service.

Event Volunteers: Older Scouts who are looking for something different are invited to join the camporee staff and help run and judge the events.  Camporee staff will receive a camporee staff t-shirt in addition to the camporee patch that all participants will receive. NRA-certified RSOs and shotgun instructors are needed; contact Thomas Palmer to volunteer.


The registration fee is $20 per Scout and $10 per adult. Payment is made online with credit card or electronic check by April 1, 2024. Council refund policy.

What to Bring

  • BSA Health and Medical form for every participant. A paper copy of the BSA Health and Medical Record (Parts A&B) for every participant (Scouts and Adults) is required to be turned in at registration.  A notebook with all the medical forms alphabetized can be dropped off upon arrival and picked up before departure.
  • Troop Roster will need to be turned in at check-in.
  • Camping gear and cooking equipment
  • Scouts participating in orienteering should bring a compass.
  • If fishing, bring fishing equipment and bait. No license is required.
  • Troops are responsible for their own meals


Every troop needs to run (or help run) a part of the camporee (e.g., competition, facilities). These events cannot happen without each Scout’s competitive spirit and participation. Planning meetings will be held prior to camporee.  Troops will receive an email informing them of the dates and times of the meetings.

Adult Training

Adult trainings are sometimes offered at camporee (e.g., Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills, Scoutmaster Leader Specific Training). Registration opens soon.

Scouting Safely

Safety is Your Responsibility posterThe BSA's Commitment to Safety is ongoing and we want you to know that the safety of our youth, volunteers, staff, and employees cannot be compromised. The Boy Scouts of America puts the utmost importance on the safe and healthy environments for its youth membership. The Sam Houston Area Council takes great strides to ensure the safety of its youth as well as the adult volunteer leadership that interacts with them. 

BSA Guide to Safe Scouting policies must be followed. All participants must follow Youth Protection Guidelines at all Scouting events. Highlights include:

  • Two-deep leadership on all outings required.  
  • One-on-one contact between adults and youth members is prohibited. 
  • The buddy system should be used at all times. 
  • Discipline must be constructive.

Health and safety must be integrated into everything we do, to the point that no injuries are acceptable beyond those that are readily treatable by Scout-rendered first aid. As an aid in the continuing effort to protect participants in a Scout activity, the BSA National Health and Safety Committee and the Council Services Division of the BSA National Council have developed the "Sweet Sixteen" of BSA safety procedures for physical activity. These 16 points, which embody good judgment and common sense, are applicable to all activities.
