Troop 54 returns to Camp Squanto to participate in the (GPS) Ground Patrol Search Camporee, a Mayflower Council BSA event. Our last visit to Camp Squanto was in 2018. The organizers describe the event as a round robin of Scout skills, including fun events like jousting, Roman chariot racing, obstacle course, slingshots, and much more. You will use your GPS Skills to locate your stations. Our site will be assigned after we register.
For details, see the Camporee Leader Guide.
