Sleeping Giant District - Fall Camporee 2014 Posted Sep. 17, 2014
Sleeping Giant, Lighthouse and Wepawaug valley Districts present
Disaster in East Scoutopia!
Camp Pomperaug,
October 17-19, 2014

The Scenario:
The National Weather Service has issued a “Hurricane Warning” for all towns in South and Central Connecticut. Since Boy Scouts are “Prepared”, they determine that East Scoutopia is the least likely place in the State to be affected by the storm and travel there on Friday to camp-out in safety. However, when they wake up on Saturday morning, they discover a surprise that requires them to respond to the conditions they now face and do the things they need to do in order to help themselves and others survive until help arrives.
