IMG_0492

The Raritan Valley district held their fifth annual ‘Green Bar Camporee’, on April 20, 21, and 22 in the Scout camping area of the Watchung Reservation.

The camporee was hosted by the Flint & Steel Assoc., celebrating its 95th anniversary in service to Scouting.

Don Androwski served as chairman for the event, with senior Scouts from Troops 12, 44, 186, & 66 who planned and executed the activities.

Over 150 Scouts and Scouters enjoyed a picture-perfect weekend to practice their Scouting skills. What makes this camporee unique is that the senior Scouts do all the planning, instruction and judging of the junior Scouts. It is a great opportunity for the junior Scouts to practice their skills in fire building, first aid, compass, and lashing to mention a few. The senior Scouts are able to work on their instruction skills and pass along some of the skills that they had learned.

Congratulations to Troops 5, 6, 12, 42, 44, 66, 88, 106, 124, 125, 127, 186, 207
