We are organizing a committee to plan and implement the G.N.Y.C. Camping Expo and High Adventure Show, Saturday, March 9, 2013, Alpine Scout Camp.
This is a major G.N.Y.C. event with over 300 participants attending the 2012 Camping Expo. Because of our emphasis this year on the B.S.A. High Adventure Camps, we anticipate even greater participation, especially from Troops with older Scouts.
The Camping Expo consists of mainly two parts:
1. A large Midway in the Cub World Dining Hall, featuring camping equipment distributors (E.M.S., R.E.I, Tent & Trails, etc.), exhibitors from G.N.Y.C. Camping Services (T.M.R., Cub World, Pouch Day Camp) and other camping-related Scouting entities (Friends of T.M.R., T.M.R. Scout Museum, etc.).
2. A variety of classes in Reeves Lodge and the Cub World Office on camping-related skills, such as camping basics, footgear selection, backpacking, stoves, cooking, hiking and knots.
We have set three possible dates for our first meeting at the G.N.Y.C. Office, 78th floor, Empire State Building:
Monday, February 4, 2013
Tuesday, February 5, 2013
Monday, February 11, 2013
We need a lot of volunteer input and support to make the 2013 Camping Expo a big success. If you want to be on the Camping Expo Committee, please let me know which date(s) would be best for you. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yours in Scouting,
