Coming on Saturday, April 14, 2018 - PLU Olson Auditorium in Tacoma:

Scout-O-Rama 2018!

Pacific Harbors Council, BSA presents:

Scout-O-Rama 2018 - Tacoma's Big Scouting Show Scout-O-Rama 2018, is a family-friendly Scouting skills show open to the public to learn more about the Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturing program for older teens.

This event 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 secret in America — we meet at night in schools and church basements and go camping in the woods on weekends.  This event is an opportunity to change that — to make us the "worst-kept secret" in the Puget Sound area.

A Scout-O-Rama is a huge, interactive, hands-on "Scouting Experience" where individual Scouting units — Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops and Venture Crews — create and operate a display "booth" to give the general public a sense of the excitement and adventure of Scouting.


Who Can Go?

The General Public is Invited!

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

Scout-O-Rama is a family friendly activity 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 "trade show" 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.

Check out the What is a Scout-O-Rama page for more detailed 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.
