Short note since I've got company this afternoon....Yes, you can have
a "community camporee" with the units in your neighborhood or
community. There are several communities that do this, and have a
great time at having a great community (or county) camporee and then
go to the District's Camporee too...
There's a concern here that your District Executive will have, and
that's the Community Camporee will overshadow the District's Camporee
or other activity. But as long as your units show up at the
District's events, that should be okay....and his or her concern will
Talk this over with your ADC to organize such a activity and make it
as small as the nine or twelve units that your ADC supervise through
his or her Unit Commissioners.
[ADC = Assistant District Commissioner, for those not familiar with
the position, supervises three to five Unit-level commissioners within
a District operation. In a large District, like Mike's, there are
several ADCs which supervise unit-level Commissioners and which report
either to a District Scout Commissioner or a District Cub Commissioner
or to the District Commissioner. One ADC typically supervises 10 to
15 units through the unit and Troop/Pack Commissioners. ]
