Camporee - Fall Rescue Mission - Timucua District

A plane crashes on Camp Shands property during a campout...rescue crews are delayed and it is up to Troop Patrols /Exploring Posts to find the injured, diagnose the victims’ condition and get them to the landing zone for transport. Is your troop/Post ready for the challenge? Participate in Timucua’s third search and rescue challenge where Patrols or posts will utilize orienteering, search and rescue and first aid skills to compete with other troops/posts. For younger scouts merit badge classes will be offered and these scouts will also help as victims. This is one competition you do not want to miss!

Mission: Patrols or teams will embark on a search and rescue mission at Camp Shands to find those injured in a plane crash on property. Scouts/explores must be proficient in orienteering, pioneering, first aid and search and rescue. This is a live exercise and points will be awarded on speed, accuracy of diagnosis, reaching the landing zone and talking to dispatchers. Scouts/explorers will be expected to transport at least one victim to landing zone. We hope to have at least one helicopter available to coordinate landing zones.

Equipment: Upon notification of participation, the teams will be given a list of items that can be brought to complete their mission. A hiking backpack or some other back pack for supplies is recommended.

More than one team per troop can compete. We will also combine scout teams if the minimum size is not met so scouts will be able to compete. If you do not have a complete team, please notify us as soon as possible for pairings.
