Registration includes participation in the event, a patch for each Scout and Scouter, and space for your troop to set up tents. Troops are responsible for their own meals. This is a good chance for your troop to host Webelos who are working on Arrow of Light. All competing Scouts must camp in tents. Venturing Crews are also welcome to attend.

Each troop/crew that participates is asked to help run one station. This gives you a chance to participate in the program planning and judging of the competition. Please indicate on the online registration form which program area your troop/crew would like to help with.

Cost: There is a $25 per unit registration fee, plus a $20 per person (youth and adult) participation fee.
