    Denver Area Council Camporee - #BlastOffDAC

    September 20-22, 2019 - Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch

     

    What's The Council Camporee? It’s an event that only happens every four years!

    Denver Area Council is excited to announce the return of the premier camping event for all Scouts, Scouters, and their family members featuring a weekend of Scouting FUN at beautiful Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch.

    It’s a Jamboree-Like Experience – Refreshed for 2019!

    We’ve taken the best experiences and activities and refreshed them for this iteration and are taking to the skies. We’re expecting to have model rocket launches, STEM activities, hands-on drone exhibits and racing, and model car off-road racing. Of course, we have traditional activities including boating on Silver Lake, mountain biking, rappelling on Ship Rock, and a variety of Cub Scout and Scouts BSA Action Centers. We’ll also be holding a shooting sports tournament to determine the best Scout marksman. Remember the bubble-wrap popping? We’re hoping to set another Guinness World Record or two with a couple different stunts.

    The Council Camporee is for Boy Scouts, Venturers, Cub Scouts & Families. Troops and Crews camp all weekend, Cub Scouts & Families camp Saturday night. Or, just come for the Day on Saturday!

    Brand New Arena Show

    We’ve revamped the Saturday Night Arena Show, to make it a party-like celebration of the Scouting Movement in Colorado. We&re bringing in the 4th Infantry Division Band to bring high-energy music, nailing down a great guest speaker, and have updated the finale show with a spectacular Drone Show from the Great Lakes Drone Company. You won't want to miss this amazing event! Check out videos of our performers here.

    New this year – Enamel Lapel Pins! Collect and Trade!!

    New this year is Pin Trading! 2019 will be the Year of the Pin as Scouts and Scouters can collect and trade enamel pins. Major Camporee event areas will have a "pin segment" available for activity participants, Midway vendors will have pins, and each youth participant and Adult Scouter will receive two custom-designed Camporee themed pins, based on their District or location to collect and trade. Throughout next year other groups will be producing pins as well – the Order of the Arrow, Summer Camp, NYLT, Wood Badge, and District events – so keep a look-out for opportunities to get pins early to expand their collection. Many Cub Packs, Scouts BSA Troops, and Venture Crews are designing their own pins as well – consider producing one for your unit and really stand out at Camporee.

    Some Pins already seen out in the Council include:

    Timberline Camporee Colorado Adventure Point 2019 College of Commissioner Science Camporee Rocket Scouts BSA Troop 130
    Gateway Camporee 2019 Scout Show NYLT Big Horn Happy Dog DDAC_JC
