Scout-O-Rama

The BSA California Inland Empire Council?s Mt. Rubidoux District is having a Scout-O-Rama event on May 3rd, 2014 in downtown Riverside. This is in conjunction with Riverside?s annual Show-and-Go Car Show (see www.showandgo.org ) which will have hundreds of people in attendance. This Scout-O-Rama will serve as a ?trade show of Scouting? for the Mt. Rubidoux District in the California Inland Empire Council. Since it is in conjunction with the annual Riverside car show, we expect that many visitors will come by our area and see what scouting is all about, making it a great recruiting opportunity. Scouts and their families will enjoy a fun-filled day of scouting exhibits, competitions and displays. The District Pinewood Derby race will also take place at the Scout-O-Rama.

Opportunities:

  • Lead a Cub Scout, Boy Scout, or Venturing activity!

As more people use parks and recreation facilities, LEAVE NO TRACE guidelines become even more important for outdoor visitors.

Leave No Trace applies in a backyard or local park (front country) as much as it does in the wilderness (backcountry).

This course will be a fun and engaging way to learn the 7 LNT principles and offer opportunities for you to take these exciting methods back to your unit and start teaching LNT right away.

When - Friday June 6 through Sunday June 8, 2014 - Friday, 6:00PM - Sunday 3:00PM
