Equipment List

  •  Patrol Flag
  •  Rockets/Engines (if you wish to shoot your own)
  •  Pinewood Derby Car (old or build a new one – BUT IT MIGHT NOT SURVIVE THE WEEKEND!)
  • Patrol First Aid Kit
  • 1 or 2 golf ball sized rocks Per Scout
  •  1 cup or mug per scout (we will not provide styrofoam cups. Think Green!)
  •  Scout Handbook (especially for  each new Scout)

Lunch Instructions

We are allowing enough time for each troop to prepare their lunch. At around 11AM the Patrols will return to their Troop campsite for lunch preparation and eating. At 1:00 PM they will return to the next station of their choice.

Hot Chocolate/Hydrate Station

At the dining hall there will be hot chocolate/bug juice for the Scouts to drink/warm up. Tecumsa will provide these, but we are asking each Troop to bring cups for their Scouts to use. Please consider not using styrofoam cups.

Flag Contest

One of the best ways to show Patrol spirit and fellowship is with a unique Patrol flag. Choose a Patrol name using this years’ “Blast, Crash, Splash, Smash ‘n Dash” Spring Camporee theme and design a special flag around the theme. The Patrol Leader must carry the Patrol flag to the opening and closing flag ceremonies, during the Spring Camporee events, and at the Saturday evening campfire. Your flag will be judged at some point during the day’s events.  

 

Judging will be based on the following

  1. Originality – Defined as relating to this year’s theme
  2. Workmanship – How well it is constructed
  3. Appearance – the size and shape should make a great display

All flags should include

  1. The name of your Patrol
  2. Troop Number
  3. The names of all patrol members
  4. The Fleur-de-lis

Tecumsa Order of the Arrow Members

The Tecumsa Chapter of Enda Lechauahanne Lodge 57 is going to assist us by building a campfire(s) for the Saturday evening closing/bridging ceremony. They would like at least 1 member from each troop to assist with this task. 

Stations

Blast, Crash, Splash, Smash ‘n Dash is a “Free Range” event. There will be no time limits to the stations and no “scheduled” station rotation times. Scouts are encouraged to try to participate in all activities but if one area interests you more than another you may stay at that station as long as you like HOWEVER…..   SCOUTS MUST ALLOW OTHER PATROLS WHO HAVE NOT ENJOYED A STATION TO HAVE A TURN BEFORE THEY CAN REPEAT ANY ACTIVITY.

 

Also – some activities (rocket launch, etc.) will have limited supplies to keep costs down. Scouts will not, for instance, be able to launch rockets all day at the District’s expense. If you love to shoot rockets and plan to do that most of the day please bring your own supplies.


Station #1 – (Parade Field) – Rocket Launch-Blast!

Station #2 – (Dining Hall) – Pinewood Derby- Crash!

Station #3 – (Field Behind Barn) – Scout Physical Challenge-Dash!

Station #4 – (Rifle Range) – Blast!
