2001. JAY FOSTER, Camporee Chief, chose the theme "Space - The Final Frontier" as a tribute to the last flight of the Challenger Space Shuttle. Among the members of the crew of this ill-fated flight, as mission specialist was his college roomate Ronald E. McNair and the first teacher in space Sharon Christa McAuliffe. Approximately 2000 Scouts and Scouters enjoyed beautiful sunny weather from start to finish of the Camporee. A working model rocket display was a big hit at the merit badge midway. The Arena Show featured black lights and a light saber duel. The fireworks display, as usual, did not disappoint the Scouts and was coordinated with music from several different space movies.
