Boy Scouts to host Camporee

Wednesday, April 8, 2009

Boy Scout Troop 144 from Holstein will host this years Thundercloud District Spring Camporee.

This event will be held at the Silver Sioux Access outside of Quimby on April 24-26.

Units from: Estherville, Emmetsburg, Spencer, Storm Lake, Cherokee, Marcus, Everly, Holstein, Paullina, Okoboji, Sheldon, Hartley, Spirit Lake, Milford, Ocheyedan and Lake View, will be participating in this event.

They will check in on Friday night and set up camp, and then on Saturday there are many fun events for the youth to attend: knot tying, black powder shooting, compass work and many other things to do during the day.

Then in the evening they will have a campfire put on by the Order of Arrow youth. At the campfire the Webelos will cross over and join the troop of their choice and many young men and adults will be called out to join the Order of Arrow.

Then Sunday they check out and go home.

The Scouts will be having a fun weekend and if anyone would like to come out and check things out they are always welcome.
