Texas Ranger Bicentennial

Camporee is a weekend campout for troops around the district. Scouts in patrols compete in various competitions and are judged on leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration and Scout spirit.  

This year's theme will be Texas Ranger Bicentennial and representatives from the Texas Rangers, and the Texas Ranger 2023 Bicentennial foundation will be attending.

Activities will include competitions based on the skills that early Texas Rangers utilized on the early Texas frontier, as well as Rangers today.  These competitions will include fire-building, orienteering, and knot-tying, as well as modern Texas Ranger activities modified into fun and safe games for youth.  There will also be a show-and-tell by a local area Texas Ranger, and a Gaga Ball Tournament that will sure to be a hit with everyone.  We will also have the traditional cobbler cook-off in the evening, followed by a Texas-sized campfire after dinner, and a Sunday morning non-denominational interfaith service.

Event Volunteers: Older Scouts that are looking for something different are invited to join the camporee staff and help run and judge the events.  Camporee staff will receive a camporee staff t-shirt in addition to the camporee patch that all participants will receive.


The registration fee is $15 per Scout and $10 per adult. Payment is made online with credit card or electronic check by April 14, 2023. Council refund policy.

Scouting Safely

Safety is Your Responsibility posterThe BSA's Commitment to Safety is ongoing and we want you to know that the safety of our youth, volunteers, staff, and employees cannot be compromised. The Boy Scouts of America puts the utmost importance on the safe and healthy environments for its youth membership. The Sam Houston Area Council takes great strides to ensure the safety of its youth as well as the adult volunteer leadership that interacts with them. 

BSA Guide to Safe Scouting policies must be followed. All participants must follow Youth Protection Guidelines at all Scouting events. Highlights include:

  • Two-deep leadership on all outings required.  
  • One-on-one contact between adults and youth members is prohibited. 
  • The buddy system should be used at all times. 
  • Discipline must be constructive.

Health and safety must be integrated into everything we do, to the point that no injuries are acceptable beyond those that are readily treatable by Scout-rendered first aid. As an aid in the continuing effort to protect participants in a Scout activity, the BSA National Health and Safety Committee and the Council Services Division of the BSA National Council have developed the "Sweet Sixteen" of BSA safety procedures for physical activity. These 16 points, which embody good judgment and common sense, are applicable to all activities.
