Fall Camporee 2016 – The Mystic East

(for Webelos 2, Boy Scouts & Venturers)

Location: Boyd Campsite and Activity Centre
Dates: 30 September to 2 October 2016
Registration due by 16 September 2016

The Mayflower District Fall Camporee 2016 will be a challenging and fun experience to test each Scout’s skills and each Patrol’s ability to work as a team. Webelos II Dens are encouraged to participate in the Camporee to introduce the Webelos to camping and fulfill the Boy Scout Activity requirement for the Arrow of Light Award.

The Mystic East is an area that is steeped in mystery and history. China was a great imperial power with trading colonies as far as Mogadishu in Africa and Baghdad in Modern Iraq. In 1422 a change in the Imperial Court meant that China entered into a period of isolation that closed these trading posts and open the lucrative spice trade to the Europeans. We invite you to join us as we journey through the wonders of this closed society. We will travel from the Great Wall on the northern frontier to the southern coast and the Towers of Hanoi.

The Information Pack is AVAILABLE HERE.  Contact Luke Johnson (tenskwatawa@gmail.com) to register or to get more information.

Merit Badge University 2017

(for Boy Scouts and Venturers)

Location: ACS Cobham 
Date: 28 January 2017
Registration: Counselors to register by 9 December 2016
MB Schedule available online from 9 December 2016
Scouts to register by 13 January 2017

Merit Badge University is an awesome opportunity for our Troops to pool resources so that Scouts can have the opportunity to work on merit badges which may not be available within a particular troop. How about learning Law merit badge with a lawyer for a Fortune 100 company? How about taking Theatre merit badge from a professional actor? Those are the sort of opportunities which we want to make happen for our Scouts.

Important information about this incredible extravaganza of advancement is contained in the info packet so please read it carefully.

The merit badge schedule and prep work will be available as a Google doc spreadsheet from THIS LINK. The spreadsheet will be kept updated as classes are filled or additional classes are opened.

The Information Pack is coming soon.  There is also a suggested spreadsheet for registrations coming soon. Contact Luke Johnson (tenskwatawa@gmail.com) to get more information.
