The Great Outdoors


Dear Unit Leaders,

As I am sure you are all aware, the Council is hosting this year’s Fall Camporee on October 8th-10th on the IPFW campus in Fort Wayne to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America.

The committee has been working for months to put this event together to give your Scouts a program that they will not soon forget. The activities planned are some that many of your Scouts will not have the opportunity to experience without their participation in the exciting event. Some of those midway activities include:

Civil War Re-Enactors

Sling Shots


Indiana State Police

Archeology Dig

Helicopter Fly-Ins

Model Trains


Totem Pole Carver

Climbing Wall

Science Central

Olympic Archery Demo

RC Models

Radio Broadcasts


Check-in will begin at 1:00 pm on Friday, October 8th, 2010 and the Camporee will conclude on Sunday morning October 14th with a non-denominational church service.

The fee is $12. For those units or Scouts interested in participating as a Day Visitor on Saturday, October 9th, the fee is $5 per person.

Another Special Activity we will offer is the Discover Scuba program where Scouts (ages 13 – 20) will be shuttled to Crossroads pool to participate in this wonderful experience. This activity is limited to 6 scouts per hour so you will need to contact Program Secretary – Nila Sink at the council Office (260) 432-9593 or at her e-mail address: This is a first come first serve program and will fill up fast.

Please see Medical and Liability Release forms for participating in this activity.

Thank you for your help in promoting this dynamic event within your units. I plan to see all of you at the Council Fall Camporee on October 8th – 10th, 2010.

Yours In Scouting,

Tim Gunter

2010 Fall Camporee Committee Chair

P.S. The public is invited to come out and visit with the Boy Scouts on this, their 100th birthday Fall Camporee.
