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 '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.

Buy Tickets Here

Scout Units and the general public can buy blocks of 10 tickets and receive discounted pricing.  Save $20 on 10 tickets!


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 networking with other Scout units, 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.

To participate in this event, please choose one of the following options:

  1. Register your Troop, Pack, Crew or Ship for a display booth
    (get registered)
  2. Information inquiries for Scout Units (ask a question)
  3. Volunteer as an Event Staffer
  4. FAQ's for Scout Units
