“What is the Historic Traveling Camporee”

The Historic Traveling Camporee is a three-day weekend adventure by chartered bus, and is an event designed to expose our Boy Scout youth and leaders to, and expand their knowledge of, our country’s heritage. It is fun, educational and one-of-a-kind ~ one of Scouting’s mountaintop experiences. Out of almost three hundred councils across the United States, Northeastern Pennsylvania Council is the “ONLY” Boy Scout Council to host biennial Traveling Camporees on a regular basis. How many opportunities do YOU have to participate in a weekend Camporee by chartered bus?

Join us for an activity-packed weekend ~ and a mountain-top
experience on 2014’s exciting and educational 13th biennial
Traveling Camporee to Washington, DC!
