A Camp-O-Ree can be a perfect showplace for the Scouting program and, therefore, go far beyond just being a gathering of Scouts.
A Camp-O-Ree starts with the recognition that a patrol is the basic camping unit. The patrol demonstrates its very best camping techniques and shares its experiences with other patrols. The Camp-O-Ree involves the type of equipment that can be carried in a pack by Scouts and can be set up entirely by Scouts, allowing them to be completely self-sufficient for a self-reliant experience over a period of two or three days.
Camp-O-Rees are held on a council or district basis. They may be held at any time of the year. Camp-O-Ree programs may include contests and demonstrations of outdoor Scouting skills as well as campfires, games, and field events. These activities can show Scouting at its best.
Camp-O-Rees can help councils and districts meet part of their goals. They stimulate overnight camping; they help units to attain part of the minimum annual 10 days and nights of camping; and they help prepare units for long-term camping.
