Registration Ends April 24! See you at the Boy Scout Camporee Hosted By Sussex District!

We are just two months away from the Sussex District 2014 Spring Camporee held at Delaware River National Park, Rivers Bend Group Campsites in New Jersey on Old Mine Road North in Millbrook Village.  The event will be held Friday, May 2- Sunday, May 4, 2014.  Activities will include, games, hiking, fishing, pioneering, and more. 

You will see paddlers slip down the river between low forested mountains; anglers wade the trout streams; hikers scan the valley from the ridge or peer into the 1000-foot-deep Water Gap. The valley has known human hand and voice for 10,000 years. Floodplains nourished the Native farmer; waterfalls drew the Victorian vacationer. Today, a 70,000-acre park welcomes those who seek the outdoors close to home.  This weekend, we will camp at one of the most beautiful vistas in the National Park.

Patrols will be given an opportunity to play a game while participating in a skill or hike a 5 mile trail. You can also take some time to fish the Delaware or Flatbrook Rivers (anyone age 16 and older must have a valid fishing license). Our Scouts will do their best!  We’ll be asking each troop to help run a station of their choice.  Also, we’ll have an old fashioned campfire with our patrols doing their special skits or songs!
