June 3, 4, 5, 2016 Camp Bonaparte

The International Camporee will be held the weekend of June 3, 4, 5 2016 The site will be at Camp Bonaparte between Tonasket and Republic. Contact the Scout Office for directions/map on how to get there. We hope you can be a part of this continuing tradition. I am certain you will all agree that is quite an accomplishment we all can be proud of.

Cost of registration will be $15.00 US dollars per person. This price includes a patch and a Saturday evening dinner. Non registered persons camping in each camp area may join in the dinner for $8.00 US dollars per person. Registrations are due at the Wenatchee Scout Center by May 15, 2016. A $5.00 US dollars fee will be charged after that date. Registrations can be Faxed and VISA or Master Card is accepted (see registration form).

Camp check-in will be from 2:00 until 9:00 PM Friday June 3rd at the entrance to the camping area. You will be directed to your camping areas for the weekend and any additional fees will be collected then. There will be a leaders and staff meeting at 8:15 PM at the cabin. Scouts will be on their own to setup camp and trade patches and etc. Scouts will be put into temporary patrols for Saturday activities. Sunday morning we will have Scouts Own. The Camporee will officially end Sunday at 1:00 PM.

Information: It’s is not known at this time whether campfires will be permitted. You will be camping in various camp sites none of which are accessible by car; requiring gear to be carried in from the main parking lot. All vehicles are to park in the main parking lot pointing in the go out direction. Most RV parking will be in the main parking lot. File all necessary tour permits as required by your councils. With added security at the border, Canadians units need to be certain you have parental permission slips and passports for all your youth. Health and permission forms are the responsibility of the units. No-trace camping will be required.

All injuries must be reported to the camp Director. Pets will only be allowed on a leash. Pet owners will clean up after their pets. All units are encouraged to participate with skits or songs at the Saturday night campfire. Be certain youth and adults bring their trading patches and materials. Patch trading tradition is probably older than this Camporee.

Uniforms will be required for Flag Ceremonies, Saturday Dinner and Campfire. Bring appropriate clothing and gear. The elevation is above 3000 feet, so it could be quite cool at night. Cell phone reception is poor or not at all, unless it satellite. The canoe race is pending but you will need change of dry clothing and drying towels.

Bring lots of Scout Spirit!
