Participants experience a variety of military and outdoor skill-based competitions and sites to include: land navigation, first aid, weapons safety and maintenance, zodiac boat race, fire building, military drill, and physical fitness. The Camporee also includes military equipment static displays, mock demonstrations of military operations such as air assault missions with helicopters, an extremely large bonfire Saturday night, and, on Sunday, a military review parade involving the Academy leadership. You will meet West Point cadets, and have the chance to show the cadets of the Civil Air Patrol to the thousands of scouts who will participate. The event is rain or shine.
