Event Description

The TRC Fall Camporee is billed as the biggest Scouting event of the year in the Twin Rivers Council. It features fellowship, games, competitions, exhibits, entertainment, and fireworks! We are also signing up for the optional Giffy's BBQ that Saturday night. Based on the flyer, they seem to have a train theme for the camporee.

This will be our first camping trip to New York State since 2012 and our first time at an event run by TRC.
