2018 Aviation Camporee
Triple Tree Aerodrome
April 20-22, 2018
It is almost time for the Palmetto Council Aviation Camporee! This will be a first for Troop 1.
This is a great opportunity for Troop1 scouts to participate in a district-wide scouting event even if they have already earned the Aviation Merit Badge being offered, and also a good time to complete First Class Cooking Requirements for Second Year and up scouts. The aerodrome has first class camping resources.
The program is geared to deliver the BSA Aviation Merit Badge in one day. Events will include classroom instruction, simple glider builds, R/C simulators, R/C demos and a museum tour.
