No, this is not a ‘drop off’ event.  This is a family event.  Every youth attending must be accompanied by an adult.

Guests need tickets to enter and they are free.  It’s recommended our guests CLICK HERE to reserve tickets in advance.  We will also accept walkup on Saturday.

Existing Scouts don’t need tickets, but they will need a waiver to participate in adventure activities.  When guests arrive at the IROEC they’ll check-in at Harrison Hall.  Families new to Scouting will receive a special thank you gift for attending our celebration of Scouting.

Booth & Scouter FAQ

Yes, the IROEC will be open all day Friday September 30th from 12pm Noon to 9pm to drop off and setup your booths.  You can, if necessary leave a unit trailer at the IROEC to facilitate tear down.  Please talk to a staff representative before leaving a trailer, to ensure it is properly parked.

Please make sure your EZ-UP(s) are staked into the ground and any supplies you leave are properly covered.  We don’t want wind or morning dew ruining your items.

There will not be the option to drop off gear Saturday morning due to park entry logistics. 

Due to other activities in the park on Saturday October 1st 2022, please consider the following when planning your teardown.

  • If you left transportation at the IROEC on Friday, the earliest you might be able to exit is 5pm Saturday. 
  • If you have to drive in a vehicle to pick up your gear, we believe the earliest you would be able to get a vehicle into the park would be 5pm Saturday.  Entry time is NOT under our control and is 100% under the Park’s control.
  • For most units, we propose you pack up your stuff, leave it in place and pick it up on Sunday October 2, 2022.  The IROEC will be available from 8am to 5pm to complete your exit.

Thank you for your understanding and assistance.

The contents of a booth are 100% the responsibility of the unit.  You will need to bring your own EZ-UP, tables, chairs, etc.  You pick the right booth size for you.  Most units use a 10×10 or a 10×20, but some need larger.  If you are doing dutch oven or camp cooking as your event, please see that FAQ.

Please make sure your EZ-UP(s) are staked into the ground and any supplies you leave are properly covered.  We don’t want wind or morning dew ruining your items.

If your unit activity is to do dutch oven or camp cooking, you will need to adhere to the following:

  • People handling food must wear serving gloves.  Unit must provide their own.
  • Units must have an Igloo or other water dispenser capable of holding HOT water. Units should be able to heat their own water.
  • Food must be covered, when not being served. Dutch oven lids can stay on, aluminum foil or other covers are acceptable.
  • Units need to either a) bring disposable serving utensils that can be swapped out on a periodic basis or be prepared to wash / sanitize regularly.
  • Units must be able to store their hot coals during and after cooking, until a time when a drop off point is opened.
  • No hot coals on the ground.
  • Normal protocols for cooking and fire safety must be followed.

No, units will need to bring EZ Ups and tables if they are needed for the activity

Due to transportation challenges, any resupplying would need to be easily transported on the buses.  Bringing shopping type bags aboard will be acceptable.  Depending on time of day and number of people seeking transportation, we cannot guarantee larger items like ice chests will fit. People requiring transport will take precedence over supplies.

Approximately 250, may be shared across District tables and other Pack booths

On Friday and Sunday, we will have the road around the main area open to facilitate unloading and loading.  Once you unload, you must immediately move your vehicle off the road to the main parking lot.  You can not leave your car on the road while setting up your booth or tearing down.

No vehicles will be allowed on any grass areas.

Yes, you are responsible for all your own trash and cleanup.  We will have a dumpster available.  Trash is not to be left at any of existing cans, it should only be put in the dumpster.  If you are cooking and have coals, you need to manage during your activity.  We will show you a place to put later.

We need your help to have the best event possible.  We have multiple areas needing assistance.  Please do not assume that someone else will help.  We need every unit to ask itself, “where will we help”?
