There were many questions about what the CTC campout is so here is a quick reference.
CTC or Challenge Trophy Camporee, is being held on October 20-22, 2017 at camp Babcock Hovey in Ovid, NY.
Each camper receives 3 patches for going.
Each camper has an opportunity to earn up to 12 more program patches.
Program patches - what are they? During the day on Saturday the scouts can particiapte in many events ranging from games, crafts, shooting sports, nature skills, educational events, sports, teamwork. In addition there are subcamp relay races, demolition drag derby and volunteer opportunities. The flyer states there are about 725 events!
Do the patches have a theme? Yes! It is Birds of Prey this year.
Currently there are both US and Canadian Troops attending the CTC with approximately 1500 scouts.
