Camporee activities included talking on ham radios with Scouts from other parts of the world, land navigation study, archery, a patrol-led tug-of-war, a fire starting competition, a knot tying competition, and pumpkin carving. The Scouts used their knot tying and lashing skills to build catapults with cedar poles and rope. These catapults were then used in a competition to see how far they could fling their carved pumpkins.
The Order of the Arrow provided a “haunted trail” for the other Scouts. Scout leaders practiced their campfire cooking skills by competing in a Dutch oven chili and dessert challenge. Free time was spent with ultimate Frisbee games and Scout wrestling matches.
