Virtual Camporee Banner


A camporee is many things—camping fun for youth, the thumping of hundreds of feet on the way to an evening campfire, and the blue smoke from fires cooking. It’s the patter of rain on many tents at night. It’s the ripple of wind-blown flags in the morning sun. It’s catching the idea of teamwork in a patrol. Camporee programs may include contests and demonstrations of outdoor Scouting skills as well as campfires, games, and field events. These activities can show Scouting at its best.

The Dan Beard Council, BSA is hosting a tandem Virtual Camporee alongside the National Boy Scouts of America Camp-In. We will be opening the day at 10:30AM with a flag ceremony, opening, and some words from our Scout Executive, Andy Zahn. The Camporee will be hosted on the Dan Beard Council Facebook page with activities that you won’t want to miss! All programming will culminate in a campfire at 9pm on the National Camp-in Facebook page. More information on the National Camp-In is available at and will be updated throughout the week. We hope you join us for a day of fun!
