The 2015 Camporee has now closed. Everyone has gone home; the tents are all packed away; all the badges traded. By all accounts it was an unqualified success.

Now, it’s time to start thinking about 2016!

The Longhouse Council, BSA would like to invite you and your Scouts to attend the 2016 Brotherhood Camporee, to be held at Wellesley Island State Park, Wellesley Island, New York on September 23-24-25, 2016!

Due to limited facilities and camping areas, the number of campers will be limited to 3500. To give all Troops the opportunity to attend we encourage you to preregister on a first come first serve basis beginning February 1, 2016. Registrations will not be accepted if postmarked before this date. Registration deadline is June 1st. You will be notified if you have been accepted or not. Troops that have been confirmed will receive additional information after June 1, 2016.

To assist with the planning, each Troop is required to submit with their applications a deposit of $5.00 per camper. Please be realistic with this number as all deposits are not refundable or transferable. The weekend fee per camper is $14.00 US which includes the Camporee patch when the total fee is paid. If your Troop registers after the June 1st deadline, a $2.00 per camper late fee will be added.

Registration form can be downloaded here. For more information email Lance Stetson, Camporee Chair.
