Southeast Louisiana Camporall

This weekend we celebrated the 100th anniversary of scouting at the Southeast Louisiana Camporall at the Salmen Scout Reservation in MS. Over 3,000 cub scouts and their families were on hand to join in on the festivities. We were there to set up an educational booth where more than 200 people took the Bigfoot Challenge. We also taught the scouts to Trash Their Trash through the activity How Long Does It Last? In addition to the Leave No Trace activities, the scouts took part in rope making, shooting practice, a ropes course, climbing wall, and obstacle courses. We were able to get in on some of the more adult oriented activities, when we were asked to be guest judges at the dutch oven cook-off. YUM-YUM! The weekend ended with an entertaining arena show, including a great fireworks display! It was a fun weekend. A special thanks to Fonnie and Randy for taking care of us all weekend!
Happy Adventuring...Kate and Tracy

Glad you could join us. The two of you were awesome and we've heard nothing but good things. You've helped inspire our units to start using Leave No Trace more, because "it isn't that hard after all". Thanks to you for your time and talents and to the Subaru Leave No Trace traveling trainers program for allowing you the time and resources to come and visit with us.

Thanks Fonnie! We enjoyed our time at the Camporall, both working with the troops and judging the cookoff- YUM! We look forward to future events with SELA Council.
