Fall 1999 Camporee

For more information about the Colonial District Fall 1999 Camporee, which will be held at Gunston Hall Plantation on October 1-3, 1999, click on the link above.

The Fall Junior Leader Workshop will be held on Saturday, Oct. 2, at Gunston Hall as part of the District's Fall Camporee. The course is already about half full, so Scoutmasters (and/or Committee Chairs) who have not already done so should send their nominations to me THIS WEEK (not later than Sunday Sept. 19) to be sure of registration. To participate, Scouts should be at least 1st Class and have completed troop-level JLT. While they do not need to be in troop leadership positions now, they should (in the SM's judgment) have the potential for leadership and/or the ability to benefit from this day-long course. Please provide the Scout's name, telephone number and current rank. There may also be one or two more spaces for Scouts on staff; we're looking for experienced Scouts who have already completed JLW, and even better IMPEESA. Contact Dave Stewart SM 1515, at this email address, or at or at 703 461 7233. NOTE: this is an all-day course, Scouts cannot do a merit badge and attend JLW.
