Norseland Scout Camp


The 2018 River Stone and Western Prairie Spring Camp-o-Ree will focus on basic lashing skills.  Some of the skills needed will be clove hitch, square lash, round lash, diagonal lash and tripod lashing.  All programming materials will be provided at this event.  Units may wish to "Be Prepared" by practicing in advance of the Lash-o-Ree!

Scouts will work their way through several stations learning and perfecting the lashing skills needed to compete in the Lashing Competition.  The Great Lash-o-Ree Competition will be a timed lashing event.  Using materials provided, each patrol must properly use the lashes taught in the stations to create a stretcher (designed however they choose) strong enough to successfully carry 1 Scout Leader from their troop across a 20 foot distance.

After lunch Scouts and leaders will find themselves giving back to Norseland Scout Camp by spending some quality time with the latrines!  Latrine maintenance and repair are on the schedule for the afternoon. 

Cost to attend this event is $10 per person if you register by April 23rd.  A late fee of $20 per person after that date.  On-line registration closes April 27, 2018.  After this date you may still attend but must register directly with Duane Rader.

Food is the responsibility of each troop.  Saturday supper will be a camp wide potluck.  Hotdogs, Baked Beans, Chips and Beverages will be provided at the potluck.  Each troop is asked to bring a dish or two for sharing with all.
