Golf Carts will be confiscated on the 3rd infraction of rules or 2nd time for the same offense of campground rules. The Youth Director will be contacted with these violations.

Youth Safety

  • Always have at least 1 adult at your campsite at all times. Adults should accompany Pathfinders at all times.
  • Teens who are allowed to go without an adult, should be with a group at all times. There is safety in numbers. Set up meeting places and times to meet during the day to reconnect and check everyone’s health.
  • Headlamps versus handheld flashlights work better for after the nightly meetings. They aren’t as likely to get left behind.
  • Always have an adult or TLT with your kids. Travel in groups.
  • Please no laser pointers. These cause serious problems especially for the Main Stage program each night of the Camporee.
  • Keep valuables at home. It very hard to secure personal items in a tent.  The Camporee is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Phone, cameras, wallets are some of the most lost items at the Camporee.
  • Give a list of all the emergency contact numbers to your Club Director for each Pathfinder.

Parking Restrictions

There are many parking lots available, some are 24/7 lots where you can come and go whenever you need and some are restricted at the Camporee. View Camporee map

  • Anyone parking in a Physically Disabled marked spot without the proper placard or license plate, will be towed at the owners expense.
  • Anyone parking in a NO Parking area, will be towed at the owners expense.
  • Go to the Safety office to find out where your vehicle has been towed.
