Event Details

Nittany Mountain District Spring Camporee 2024

Caring for the sick and injured, extinguishing fires, preventing crime, promoting a safe culture, and helping other people.  These are the jobs that many first responders perform.  At the 2024 Nittany District spring camporee you will enjoy a weekend practicing the skills that encompass many of the first boy scout merit badges, many of which continue today.  At the camporee, you will learn about careers and opportunities to volunteer in Emergency Services.  You will meet and talk to members of several emergency service organizations.  Trained fire rescue crews will perform a vehicle extrication demonstration.  Gesinger Life Flight crew is visiting, and they will be available to view their air-medical helicopter and talk to the medical professionals and pilots who staff this apparatus.  You can tour the Pleasant Gap Fire Company; which provides structural, wildland, and vehicle fire suppression; vehicle, technical, and swift water rescue; and BLS and ALS emergency medical services to the citizens of Pleasant Gap, parts of Spring Township, and in other areas via mutual aid. 

You can also explore an exposition midway that hosts exciting presentations from the Nittany and Bald Eagle Railroad, Pennsylvania State Police, Penn State University Eberly College of Science’s CSI Mystery Machine, a climbing wall, local fire services, and more.  Intermixed in this midway will be skill centers for evaluating your patrol’s skills at first aid.  EMT judges will evaluate your skills using skill sheets from the national EMR program.  Finally, a search and rescue drill will assess your skills in finding a missing person.  Additional demonstrations of fire suppression activities may be available depending on emergency service availability. 

This event is being hosted by Troop 66 and Pack 23 Pleasant Gap, Alpha Phi Omega Alpha Beta Chapter Penn State (National Service Fraternity), and the Pleasant Gap Fire Company.
