Coming on Saturday, May 11, 2019: Scout-O-Rama 2019!
Only 112 more days till Scout-O-Rama 2019!


Pacific Harbors Council, BSA presents:

Scout-O-Rama 2019; a family-friendly Scouting skills show or 'Scout Con', open to the public to learn more about the Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturing program for older teens, and the all-new Family Scouting program for girls ages 6 - 10.

Presented by the Pacific Harbors Council of the Boy Scouts of America, Scout-O-Rama is designed to take the "Scouting Story" to the youth and families in our communities who are not yet a part of the Scouting experience. The BSA is the best-kept 108 year old secret in America. This event is an opportunity to change that, and give the general public a sense of the excitement and adventure of Scouting.

A Scout-O-Rama is a huge, interactive, indoor-outdoor hands-on "Scouting Experience", featuring family friendly activities, informational displays and hands-on opportunities to demonstrate Scouting's value to today's active families.

Fun for the whole family!  For Scouts and non-Scouts alike!

Scout-O-Rama is a family friendly 'Scout-Con' convention that promises fun for the whole family!  Learn what Scouts do in an interactive 'trade show' atmosphere, with interactive demonstrations of outdoor skills, camping, climbing, pinewood derby racing, games, arts & crafts, sports and much more!

The Scout-O-Rama will be an indoor/outdoor display of all Scouting has to offer, featuring activity stations from units around the Tacoma area, to provide a Scouting skills demonstration, game, activity or other information.


For Scouting Units

Each Scouting unit in the Council will have an opportunity to participate in this event, with the potential benefits being unit level fundraising through ticket sales, networking with other Scout units, recruitment opportunities, fun for the whole family and more.

Units develop the idea for a hands-on activity that would give visitors a chance to actually "do" Scouting — whether it be learning how to make ice cream in coffee cans, demonstrating knot tying, flag folding, arts & crafts, games or finding out more about how to cook a meal using no pots or pans. All this, and so much more, could be the focus of a unit's 10' x 10' Scout-O-Rama display booth.

If you want to participate in this event, please choose one of the following options:

  1. Register your Troop, Pack, Crew or Ship for a display booth

  2. Sell Tickets to Scout-O-Rama (raise money for your unit)
