Sunapee District Fall Camporee
The Fall Camporee will take place on October 4,5 and 6 at "Windy Top", a 120 acre wilderness area near Sutton, NH. This event will include Scouts and Troops from throughout the Sunapee District. The theme of the Camporee will be "The Flintstones Meet the Jetsons". The idea will be to see and understand both the old ways of camping and the new ways so as to gain an appreciation of the advances in equipment and techniques.
We will meet at the old hospital parking lot on Friday evening, travel to Windy Top, and hike in a short distance to a wilderness campsite; probably unimproved. We will set up camp, prepare a late dinner and go to bed. Saturday we will spend part of the day working on campsite improvements and part of the day going around to a series of activity stations provided by the camporee organizers. Saturday night we will participate in a campfire. Sunday morning we will participate in a pancake cook-off, break camp and come home.
Activities will tenatively include:
A climbing wall
