2009. GEORGE GILMORE, Camporee Chief, of the 50th Anniversary of the Scoutmasters Camporee chose the theme of "Fifty Years of Camporee History." Every unit was allowed to pick any theme of the past years and build their gateway based on that theme. This opportunity led to gateways and campsites recognizing Wilderness Survival, Backwoods Engineering, Indian Lore, Aquatic Environments, and many other exciting gateways. Weather was great but a little too cool for swimming sports but there is always next year. Our Arena Show included the Air Force Jr. ROTC Drill Team from Northeast High School in Fort Lauderdale and they put on a spectacular display of intricate maneuvers for our enjoyment. Some of our "Adult" Leaders showed that they did know how to eat cake and the show ended with a special fireworks show celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Scoutmasters Camporee.
