Great Success at Camporee

Despite the rainy weather Troop 500 was prepared for the Star Wars Camporee at Camp Emerson.  

Troop 500 cleaned up on the costume contests sweeping both the Scout and Adult costume contests with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places.  Troop 500 also won the award for most Spirit as almost all of our Scouts and leaders had Star Wars costumes and our Camp Site was the landing zone for an X-wing fighter with BB8 as the Co-Pilot.
