Dan Beard District CamporeeTroops and Packs from around the district gathered at Long Hunter State Park on April 11th for the District Camporee and campfire. During this fun gathering, five Cub Scouts were awarded their Arrow of Light and crossed over into welcoming troops. Several Boy Scouts were also “called out” during the Order of the Arrow ceremony, which recognizes those chosen by their peers to become members of the OA. The weekend was a huge success and a nice preview for the fun to come this fall for the District Soap Box Derby Camporee, October 16th-18th.
