    Questions? Contact our Special Needs Camporee team by emailing specialneedscamp@cccbsa.org

    More Volunteer info:

    Chester County Council’s Special Needs Camporee is a camping event like no other. Scouts routinely do a Good Turn Daily, but the entire Special Needs weekend is a Good Turn. 

    The Camporee is the only camping experience many of the Special Needs scouts have, and they rarely are able to experience events like Archery, shooting BB guns, Campcraft, swimming, a campfire, or the animals Dr. Stolz brings to the Nature Lodge.  Helping with these activities in the relaxed atmosphere of the Special Needs weekend can give an amazing boost to your heart and soul.

    Camping (in your own tent) in the field behind the pool, embroidered patch, Staff T shirt, breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Sat.,  and breakfast on Sun. are included in the staff registration fee of $15. For more information, contact Zack Bowen 610-793-1001 zack@bowenasset.com or Jo-Ann Hohl 610-323-7397 joann@wholesolutions.com.


    ScoutReach and the Special Needs Camporee are outreach/character education programs conducted by The Chester County Council, Boy Scouts of America at little or no cost to the participants. They deliver traditional Scouting programs to youth & adult participants throughout the Chester County Council who otherwise would not be able to participate in the program. These programs are made possible in part by grants from the CCRES Foundation. Learn more about CCRES at: www.ccres.org

    The Mid-Atlantic Amateur Radio Club (MARC) will be holding a Radio Merit Badge session in conjunction with their annual Field Day - an event which allows amateur radio operators to practice their skills with emergency communications and to inform the public about the mission and value of amateur radio. Interested Scouts must pre-register for this event by June 19th by contacting Jeremy Carlo, MARC President and session leader at jcarlo@caa.columbia.eduThe merit badge session will start promptly at 2 PM with the goal of having all scouts earn the badge and end the session by 6pmScouts will need to arrive with blue cards signed by their Scoutmasters.

    For more information, check out MARC's website and scroll down to the Field Day link. MARC has held three prior Radio Merit Badge sessions allowing more than 60 scouts to earn the badge. The sessions are held by skilled radio operators, and led by certified Merit Badge Counselors who are current with the Boy Scout Youth Protection Program. This year's session will be held at the Lower Providence Fire Company facility located at the intersection of Ridge Pike and Mount Kirk Avenue in Eagleville, PA.

Scout Executive Challenge
Fill my office with Peanut Butter and Jelly by June 1st!

Hunger is bad. And in Chester County it's just plain wrong. And yet for some 13,000 school children the much anticipated end of the school year also means the end of the school lunch program and the uncertainty of a daily meal. I never really thought about that before. I would like all Scouts to consider supporting the Chester County Food Bank and the United Way of Chester County in their
Peanut Butter and Jelly Drive.


We encourage individual Scouts, Dens, Patrols, Packs, Troops and Crews to participate by filling my office with peanut butter and jelly! They request no glass jars and, of course, no expired items. Have your Scouts bring in Peanut Butter and Jelly to your next meeting. Scouts can ask their friends and neighbors to help feed the hungry. If you have a Scout with severe peanut allergies consider collecting just jelly or sunflower seed butter. Arrange for a driver and a couple Scouts (for a photo op) to make the delivery to the Scout Service Center, 504 South Concord Road, West Chester, anytime on or before June 1st*.

YIS,Charlie Rogers

*Please note that the Chester County Food Bank will happily accept your food donations after June 1st as well.
