to all scouters,
i have recently gained the position of camping chairman of the
1000 hills district of the great rivers area council in missouri.
i was wondering if you might have any ideas for a exciting plus
different camporee. our district is not big ,just 9 troops, but
very spread out. (we have a lot of farming communities). which
also means the familys of scouts are not very wealthy. this poses
a problem. many boys raise just enough money for summer-camp.
there is not money for just a campout. therefore attendance is
low at past camporees. i want to change that. i am sure that money
is not the only key to this problem. same type of format also
"bores" older scouts from "doing the same thing". so what can i do?
