Are you ready for the challenge?
May 4th-6th, 2018Manitou Scout Camp, Campbellville, Ontario
Bigger and better than ever, the annual Joe Thorne and James Elliott patrol competition camps have joined forces!
This competition camp provides an excellent opportunity for Scout patrols to demonstrate their ability to work as a team while participating in challenging activities, and to learn new twists to old ideas.
By achieving certain standards, every patrol can win a Bronze, Silver or Gold tent peg award, and the top patrols win trophies as well.
The camp will be divided into a number of camp “Troops” consisting of four or five patrols each. Patrols will be assigned to their camp troop upon arrival at camp. Each troop will have a resident “Scoutmaster”.
A visiting guest Venture Scout, Rover Scout, or Scouter will judge the Saturday night meal preparation, presentation, service and clean-up.
The Challenges:Each patrol will participate in a round robin of events. They don’t require specific scout-craft skills, but do need imagination, teamwork and adaptability. Thinking before doing is often a winning strategy.
Points Scoring:Patrols receive points for arrival, each challenge, campsite orderliness/improvements and for “Saturday Invite-a-Guest to Dinner” event.
Location:This year's event will be located at Camp Manitou in Campbellville, Ontario.
