About our theme

Come back to the mountains!

Rocky Mountain Rendezvous (in trapper jargon) was an annual gathering (1825-1840) at various locations held by a fur trading company at which trappers and mountain men sold their furs and hides and replenished their supplies.

The rendezvous was a celebration with competitions.  James Beckwourth described it as "Mirth, songs, dancing, shouting, trading, running, jumping, singing, racing, target-shooting, yarns, frolic, with all sorts of extravagances that white men or Indians could invent".  Sounds like a Scout event!

Event Organization

Camp for the weekend. We supply space for campsites, water, potties, and program. Each unit organizes their own food. Check-in is Friday evening, check-out is noon on Sunday. Activity stations are open all day Saturday and Sunday morning.  Stations are not "scheduled".  Go where you want, stay as long as you please. Camp fire Saturday night. There are a few special events that do have a schedule.  More on this below.

Scheduled activities

Scoutmaster cook-off
Mountain man costume competition
Camp fire

Forming Camporee Patrols

Scouts will attend stations with their Patrol. We suggest Patrols be limited in size to 6-8 members.  For example a Foosball team is 6 players.

COVID-19 restrictions
- All attendees must wears masks
- Tents are single occupancy (unless family member)

Competition

Like previous years the entire weekend is a competition.  Ideally: First, second, and third place patrols will be awarded custom neckerchiefs at closing flag.  However since we are monitoring COVID, all patches and custom neckerchiefs may be delivered after the camporee.
