             100 years instincts and working together to complete a task or event. We

            troop, den, or crew at check-in and must be in attendance for the duration
            of the weekend.

Security:    The Camporee Staff will provide Security throughout the weekend and
             other Law Enforcement agencies will provide support.

             designated vehicle will be allowed in the camping area for unloading only.
             Camporee Staff will accompany this one designated vehicle, which should
             be loaded and first in line upon arrival. Parking will be to the immediate
             right upon entrance and the camping will be on the left. Tags will be
             issued at arrival and turned in at check in.

 Okefenokee Area Council Camporee – 2010 “100 Years”
Webelos:     Webelos Scouts are encouraged to attend the Camporee and to take part
             in the program of events. Webelos patrols will be partnered with a scout
             troop (if they are not already teamed with a unit). Scout Troops should
             invite Webelos patrols to camp with them and to join them later.

             Webelos patrols will be able to participate in most all events. For safety
             and timing, Webelos will have activities directed to their program areas
             and not necessary be competing along side the Boy Scouts.

Awards:      Camporee ribbons will be awarded (blue, red or yellow) to all patrols
             based on participation, use of patrol method, and campsite inspection.
             See enclosed Patrol Score Sheet and Patrol Campsite Inspection Score
             Sheet.

             Ribbons will be given before departure to the Senior Patrol Leader or
             Venture Crew President only when the unit campsite area passes 100%
             on checkout inspection. Areas should be left better than you found them.
             Patrol and Troop award winners will be announced at the closing
             ceremony; however, all ribbons will be presented at checkout.

Commissioners:
          Camporee Commissioners will be making rounds during the entire
          weekend.

Food:        Patrol cooking is required for this event.

Tents:       All units must provide their own tentage.

Sanitation: Port-a-johns will be provided in the main camping area and program
            areas. Please use the facilities provided and DO NOT construct troop
            latrines. It is recommended that each participant bring a roll of toilet paper
            for backup or personal use. BE PREPARED!

Campsites: Patrol sites will be approximately 30’ X 30’. Patrol sites are designed to
           accommodate 8 to 10 scouts. Each unit will be allowed at least 2 sites to
           provide scout leaders and scouts plenty of space. Please minimize where
           possible when registering.
