Peter Murphy asked about Camporee/District Event Planning.
There is a Camporee guide published by BSA. I haven't seen one for quite
a while but it did have some excellent suggestions for committee structure
and time lines for planning. Both are often problem areas, i.e., one person
tries to do it all, and they try to do it all in a couple of weeks.
There is also a guide for shows, ceremonies and recognition meetings. It
has similar suggestions for committee structure and time lines for planning.
Your council office should be able to get either if they don't have them
on hand. The only problem I've seen with their use is the lack of it. Too
often, people try to reinvent the whole thing rather than making use of some
professionally developed guides. Adapt 'em, don't ignore 'em.
