2016. Jose Quintero, is of Puerto Rican decent and is the first Latin-American to serve as Camporee Chief. Having been in the Scouting and Exploring programs as a youth in the 1970's and 1980's, I lived the transformation that the world has experienced as we have moved to a digital age. Hence our theme: "Scouting in a Digital World". From corded phones and black-and-white television, to our current smartphones and hundred plus channel TV offerings; the world has been fully transformed due to digital technologies and communications. Likewise, the Scouting program has evolved, and continues to evolve, to meet the new world that we live in, WITHOUT abandoning our core values and goals. That is our opportunity and our challenge. During the Camporee we strived to bridge these worlds. Retaining our core and popular traditional events and activities, while introducing some of the ways that technology can be incorporated to enrich and enhance the Scouting experience for our youth. From introducing a Scavenger Hunt using GPS systems to airbot races and the arena show lip-sync battle and online voting, technology was on display throughout the Camporee.
