> prior to Memorial Day. The Camporree has grown to a regional event and
> 1998 attracted over 900 youth (including Cubs) and adults from Iowa,
> Illinois and Missouri.
> This years Camporee is scheduled for May 21, 22 & 23 ( you check in
> PM or Saturday AM) and will be bigger and better. We've maintained the
> gems of the past (Electric Trolley Rides, Train Rides, Log Village, Steam
> Engines, and Working House Demonstrations) with some more current items
> interest such as an Internet Workshop for exporing the great amount of
> Scouting related information on the WEB, Radio-Controlled Model
> Pinowood Derby Run-off and more. Enjoy Patch Trading, Evening Song
> Swap Meet, Dunk Tank and more.
> Come with your troop for the weekend, your pack or den for the day or as
> family for the weekend or day. There are spacious campground
> accommodations with modern bathrooms (hot showers) and RV hookups.
> Send an email with your address to firstname.lastname@example.org for
> an information & registration packet.
