To Camporee-Goers on 9/30-10/2/16:

Our annual exciting event is finally here next weekend! This year, one Venture Crew from Koolina District will be joining Kapiolani and Koolau District Troops.  This is a great time to meet Scouts from other Troops.  There will be lots of fun skills activities and relays, Tug-a-war, T-shirt dyeing, beach clean-up service project, iron-chef competition, and of course the great campfire. Here’s some important information about base access, directions/base map, parking, and policies.
