Scouts will be selling tickets in their neighborhoods up until the day of the show on April 13, 2018. The cost is $5.00 per person. In the meantime, if you would like to buy a ticket, you can contact us, and we can reserve you a ticket.
The sky's the limit as to what your unit does as your interactive, hands-on activity during Scout-O-Rama – but, remember, make it something that youth, age 6 to 19, and their families would want to do, and probably could not do, except at Scout-O-Rama.
Take a look at our list of activity ideas, and choose one!
Increase visibility of Scouting in your community
Recruit new members for your unit
Raise money for your unit through ticket sales
Networking and seeing what other units are doing with their Scouting programs
Earn patches and prizes!
As a primary purpose, this event is intended to be a fun day of Scouting activities for the whole family, and the general public have the opportunity to see Scouts in Action, and get a sense of the excitement and adventure of Scouting.
Back in the 1950's, 1960's and 1970's, a Scout-O-Rama was held every year, attracting thousands of Scouts and members of the general public. We are hoping to recapture that level of energy and interest that drove the Scout-O-Rama movement for over 25 years.
The Pacific Harbors Council conducted an interest survey in August, 2017, to determine the level of interest in a Scout-O-Rama. 400 people responded to the survey (121 Cub Packs, 190 Boy Scout Troops, 12 Crews and 58 others), and the results confirmed that there was sufficient interest in holding this event in April, 2018.
Scout Unit display booths cost $25 each. Units selling 100 or more Scout-O-Rama Tickets will receive a free 10'x10' booth.
Your unit will be provided with a 10'x 10' sized "booth" inside the display area. Units are responsible for providing your own tables and chairs.
If your interactive activity requires electrical power, a $50 fee will apply. If you prefer an outdoor display area, please indicate that on the Scout-O-Rama signup form. Bring your own power cords.
Set-up for unit Scout-O-Rama booths begins at 7 AM on Saturday, April 14. We ask that you be ready for the public to arrive by 10 AM. Teardown can begin at 4:05 PM and must be completed by 6 PM. NO CAMPING.
Scout Units will have an opportunity to earn money for their units by selling tickets to the Scout-O-Rama. Tickets cost $5 per person.
