Boy Scout Fall Camporee
Thanks to everyone who attended the Lincoln Trails Council 2016 Fall Camporee event held October 21-23 at Rhodes France Scout Reservation. Both Boy Scout Troops and Venture Crews were invited to attend the STEM based event which culminated in a Rube Goldberg inspired Mouse Trap Project Competition!
Activities included a Mousetrap STEM Compeition that required the Scouts to create machine to raise from the base and hold a golf ball at 2 feet. The machines were miniature prototypes for a machine to hang very heavy food bags in trees to keep the bears from eating the food!
Awards for the following successful missions were given:
Fastest Speed: Troop 142
Fastest Speed: Troop 31
Slowest continuous motion: Troop 289
Most complex motion: Lone Scouts
Bear Bag Award: Troop 91
