2003 Olympia SCOPE

S.C.O.P.E. 2003
May 22-26, 2003 - Camp Kweebec

S.C.O.P.E. originated in Canada’s Centennial year of 1967, thus the name: Scouts Centennial Ontario Pennsylvania Excursion, when 541 Canadian Scouts visited the USA. The Canadian Scouts returned the hospitality when 800 Boy Scouts of America visited Boyd Conservation Area in 1968. Scope has continued in this fashion every four years, with the most recent cycle being 2003/2004.  The American portion of the event was held this year at Camp Kweebec, located in Schwenksville, PA (an hour out of Philadelphia).

S.C.O.P.E. was a unique scouting experience which enabled Scouts and Leaders from East Burlington (plus 3 guests from 13th/27th Burlington) to become part of a Pennsylvania family and Scout Troop in May 2003, attending school and camping with their fellow Scouts. Each one of our participants became a member of an American Scout Troop and family for the weekend. Despite less than ideal weather (the "Daily Drench" title of the camp newspaper was very appropriate), it was a memorable extended weekend.  Activities included woodworking, pioneering, first aid, orienteering, science, a carnival midway, dog house building, and the FUNNEL CAKES.  On Saturday night, the Burlington Scouts treated the camp to our unique version of the JCPenney skit at the Camp Show.

In 2004 the American scouts will be visiting us and joining our families and Troops.
