The Biggest Council Scouting Event of the Year!
What is Scout-O-Rama?
Scout-O-Rama is a large outdoor event where Scouting groups in our local community showcase games, crafts, activities, skills and more. All-in-all there are typically over 200 booths or activities at the yearly event, which amazes over 6,000 visitors.
Imagine thousands of scouts from all four counties coming together to show off the best of what Scouting has to offer to the community!
Scout leaders will leave Scout-O-Rama with months of activity ideas for their Troops, Crews or Packs. Scouts will leave with their heads spinning, full of the fun and amazing opportunities the Scouting program offers. Family members will leave happy, knowing that Scouting will make a difference in their child’s life.
Booth Map and Information
We encourage all Scouting units to host a booth at Scout-O-Rama. For those who are hosting a booth, there is some information that you need to know to make your time at Scout-O-Rama the best experience possible. This information will be available as the date approaches.
Scouting units sell Scout-O-Rama ticket cards which will grant a family gate admission to the event, but card sales will earn money for you Scouting unit!
Units earn a 30% commission ($3 for every ticket sold) on all sales! This can add up to hundreds of dollars very quickly! The top selling unit earned over $3,000 in 2012!
The $10 Ticket Cards are good for Scout-O-Rama entry for a family. Parking fees are not included. The Ticket Cards have five one-time use offers. Four are on breakaway tabs. The back of the card includes an additional twelve offers that are valid through the end of each calendar year.
GREAT NEWS! The San Jose and Salinas Scout Shops have decided to honor the 10% savings for personal purchases on the ticket cards all year long! It is no longer a one-time use offer!
Awesome Prizes for every Scout who sells!
- 2014 Prize information will be available shortly
