Scouting Around

Video of a day at the West Point Camporee



The West Point Camporee is held one weekend each spring near Lake Frederick, N.Y., not far from the United States Military Academy. Actual West Point cadets — most of them former Scouts — put the thousands of Scouts, Venturers and Girl Scouts through some basic training at dozens of stations.

Some of the stations test the Scouts physically. Others test them mentally. All are tons of fun.

Take a look at video from a day at the West Point Camporee, and then check out the March 2014 issue of Boys’ Life magazine for more information about this fun event.

    Maybe two medals should be given out to the boys who attended. One medal could be a participation medal and the other medal could be participating in “the rescue of the hostage.”
