Boy Scout Camporee - December 24, 1986

Eight scout troops bivouacked on Qurayyah beach and competed in nine events designed to test the 115 boys and 29 adult leaders on scouting skills at the recent Boy Scouts Camporee.

Competitions in knot-tying, signaling, map reading, compass use, physical fitness, rope lashing, first aid, observation, and fire building took place on Thursday, followed by an evening campfire when awards were given to the winning patrols.

The Turtle Patrol Troop 464 captured first place, with the Bader and Owl Patrols (both of Troop 253) won second and third place awards, respectively.
