Silver Comet "Battlefield Road" 2024 Spring Camporee

Apr 19, 2024, 5:00 PM – Apr 21, 2024, 10:00 AM

Wanderland Campground, 3865 GA-157, Rising Fawn, GA 30738, USA

Since the United States Armed Forces was founded in 1775, its branches have engaged in good-natured rivalries, each certain that they are the toughest and the best. Over the year, these seemingly innocuous rivalries have helped shape international relations, influenced policies, and have effected the balance of power on a global scale. In April 2024,

Silver Comet will settle the age-old argument once and for all at "Battlefield Road", a camporee to rival any other. The Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Force will come face-to-face at Lookout Mountain for a series of physical and mental challenges that will ultimately end in the crowning of the winning branch. Which branch will your patrol belong to? Do you have what it takes to work together and take home the glory?

Youth: $20 | Adults: $10
