Popcorn Fest 2020
Saturday, August 22, 2020
Cedar Point Scout Camp
8-Noon OR 1-5pm
Everyone is welcome!
After the success of the 2019 Popcorn Fest, the Popcorn Committee read the comment cards and evaluated the event. We are excited to announce the New And Improved Popcorn Fest 2020!
This training and fun event will still be held at Cedar Point Scout Camp, will still be a free event and will still offer a combination of training and fun activities. However, the event will be split into two time slots for smaller crowds, and the activities selected will be more manageable and fully staffed.
Based on which neighborhood you are with, you will either attend the morning session or the afternoon. Please see Neighborhood Plan – Council Structure to determine which neighborhood your unit is part of. Neighborhoods of Austin, Albert Lea, New Ulm and Fairmont will attend the morning session. The afternoon session will host Mankato, St. Peter and Waseca.
This training will be required as part of the unit’s commission climb.
With Covid-19 in the picture, as the CDC makes changes, we will adjust our program to conform to those guidelines. We are working hard to provide you and your Scouts a fun and safe event while still learning about popcorn 2020.
If you’d like to assist with this event, please contact Shelley at the Center for Scouting at 387-3123 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration for this event will be open closer to the event.
