Catholic Camporee – Diocese of Raleigh (Cancelled)
This event has been cancelled. Please follow the link below if you need to contact someone about the cancellation. Thanks!
Dear Scouters — Welcome to the 2022 Catholic Camporee! We’ve been waiting to host our Camporee again, and finally the time feels right. The pandemic continues to disrupt our lives in countless ways, large and small. One result was the cancellation of our 2020 and 2021 Camporees. We made those decisions to ensure the safety of our extended Scouting family, and the 2022 Camporee will adhere to the safety guidelines of Scouts BSA, Camp Bowers, and local and state authorities.
The theme of the 2022 Camporee is what we’d planned in 2020, and it seems more appropriate than ever. As Jesus told Lazarus, “Rise Up!” We look forward to renewing the fun and fellowship of Catholic Scouters, as well as those from other faith traditions (all are welcome!)
• Youth seek to advance in level and Rise Up! across Scouts BSA, Girl Scouts, Camp Fire and American Heritage Girls. They learn new skills, explore the outdoors, hone leadership and deepen their faith.
• At the 2022 Camporee, we’ll have Camp Bowers’ 65-foot climbing tower open for those who want to Rise Up! with a little altitude.
• And we’ll gather as a faith community to celebrate Mass and let our prayers and songs Rise Up! to the heavens.
People of Service
In keeping with the ideals of Scouting and in the Camporee tradition, we will provide an opportunity to serve others. We will gather food and cleaning supplies (there’s a list in this plan) to help Catholic Parish Outreach feed hungry neighbors through its food pantries. Please bring some of these items to help those in our community in need. Many thanks!
