Assembly & Worship

Cadets and counselors assemble for worship and special activities several times during the week.

Traveling to Camporee

We HIGHLY recommend a passport when traveling to Camporee for the smoothest border crossing.

If driving across, a passport card will work.

Cadets under the age of 16 can cross with a birth certificate but we do not recommend this if they are not traveling with a parent.

Cornel Rylaarsdam Memorial Fund

Some families would like to send their son to an international camporee, but they simply don’t have the financial resources to make it work. The CRMF is available to help pay part or all of the registration fees for individuals who need help. The request is reviewed by the Steering Committee of the International Camporee.


Give to the Fund

Your contribution will give boys the opportunity to participate in this great adventure.
