Scouting the Skies

Seven Rivers District Scouting the Skies

2016 Spring Camporee

May 20 – 22, 2016

1B9 Mansfield Municipal Airport, Mansfield, MA

It’ s Gonna Be an Aerial Extravaganza

Come join your fellow Scouts and Venturers from the Seven Rivers District on Friday May 20 through Sunday, May 22, 2016 for a weekend of fun and excitement at the Mansfield Municipal Airport. Located just minutes from US Hwy. 495 and downtown Mansfield — on the "old fruit field". There will be activity stations along with static aircraft displays — we are in discussions with a number of outside organizations to provide displays for the Scouts to explore between stations — and there’s the opportunity for some lucky Scouts to take to the skies in flights with the local chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association. The Old Colony Cadet Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol will be there, along with the Norwood Amateur Radio Club plus members of the local Model Aircraft Club are expected to join us, and a Pilot or two (or more) for demonstrations and tours of their Aircraft — and this is only the beginning! There will be activities that will get Scouts started on Aviation, Radio, Astronomy, and Weather merit badges and weather permitting, we will use some Quality Telescopes to do a little stargazing.
