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.
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!
