Council Camporee May 2-4, 2014

Dear Scouts and Adult Leaders

Your troop is invited to attend the Allohak Council Spring Camporee. This year’s theme is “The Battle of Philippi”. Our Camporee dates are May 2 – 4 at Barbour County Fairgrounds. This year’s theme promotes scout skills, teamwork and a little fun.

We are excited this year to have with us some reenactment Civil War units from the area. These units promise to add real authenticity to your event…

The leaders guide should help you understand what is happening at the Camporee so you can publicize it to your troop. Activities include patrol sprit competition (bring a Civil War Battle flag, and a staff) as well as some great events.

We need your assistance in staffing the many activities planned for the 20-30 troops and over 350 Scouts and Scouters. Each troop is asked to volunteer at least 4 Scouters/older scouts who will help run the events. In addition, volunteers will help with contest judging, score keeping, event timing, coordinating vespers, and the campfire.

Call Ted Cox, Camporee Chairman, at 304/893-7143 or e-mail at if you need more information, or are interested in serving as one of the activity chairmen or volunteers.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at Barbour County Fairgrounds!

A Day of Reunion (June 21st)

A Day of Reunion!!

June 21, 2014 – starting at 1:00pm – ?????

We are inviting all former Scouts, the public, former camp staff and Eagle Scouts in the area to spend a day at camp. We encourage troops to consider a “troop reunion” in the site they camp in, to help bring old friends back. Folks will have the opportunity to sign up and join Camp Kootaga Alumni, Kootaga Staff Alumni and Eagle Scout Alumni groups. Also to become a volunteer! We will have hotdogs, chips and drinks in several campsites to folks can make their own with their kids. We want to create a list of our friends. Media, Media, Media.

We are looking at a “Mossman Classic” trail run to be held at camp to get free advertisement and promote awareness of camp and our facilities. More to come.

I would like to start the discussion to open up the use of camp for local law enforcement training events and even businesses for team building events. We have to use or camps in a way t help promote Scouting and crate ne “friends” with benefits that will enjoy and respect our camps.

I would like the board to host a “Council Campfire” this year, possibility two next year. A day long outing thank-you for our leaders and their families to come to camp for a cookout, Dutch Oven Cooking, live music and an opportunity to camp-over with your family. A time of Friendship and fellowship.

Ever been to Philmont? I will be planning a “Philmont Training Center Event” for our leaders to take place next summer. It is a tremendous experience and a great opportunity to live out your Philmont dream! The best training and an opportunity to hike some Philmont and visit opening and closing trail campfires. Let’s see how many folks we can take! (I Bet Dr. Bill would head this up). Bus or fly?

I would like to see us offer “Flight School” council-wide. Quarterly “what it takes to be an Eagle Scout workshops”, hosted by different District Eagle Advancement chairs in different locations. A session available to Life Scouts to go over the Eagle workbook with Scouts (and parents)/ Topics and discussions can include what make a good project, leadership ideas and suggestions, record keeping and the importance of media sharing your project from start to finish. Guest speakers can be our District Eagle Scout Project of the Year winners. Sell the dream, we lose too many Scouts from Life to Eagle. Each Scouts gets a white button patch with an Eagle in Flight Suit on it that says “FLIGHT SCHOOL”. We had 50+ Eagle Scouts in 13 years – ask me if it works and motivates kids.

If you have a special interest in any of these programs, email me and let me know. Thanks for your service!

Camp Red Arrow June 23-26, 2014

Camp Red Arrow Cub Scouts can participate in many types of activities including, archery, BB-guns, sling shots, field sports, nature, arts and crafts, Scout skills, and a variety of other events. All areas (especially range activities) place a special emphasis on safety procedures. It’s a fun-filled week four days of challenging Cub Scout activities, exciting adventures and new friendships.

Camp is under the direction of a Camp Director and Program Director trained at the Boy Scouts of America National Camping School. All ranges are under the supervision of staff with hours of training and experience in their field. Safety is the number one priority at day camp followed by fun and adventure.

Scouts primarily sign up and attend day camp with their Pack. Camp is a lot more fun when your den attends together. However if your Pack is not attending Day Camp there is no reason why you should miss out on the adventure. A Scout and their adult partner can attend day camp and be matched with a den of Scouts the same age. We don’t want anyone to miss out on this awesome summer experience. Please contact your Day Camp Director, Rich Maskiell for information on how to attend without your Pack.

This year we will allow the cub scouts to invite a friend to attend camp on Wednesday, June 25. More details on this later.
