2014 NJ State Police National Guard Camporee
The NJ State Police National Guard Camporee will take place this coming May 16th, 17th & 18th, 2014 at the National Guard Training Center in Sea Girt NJ. Registrations are due by March 31, 2014. All Camporee items will be pre-sold online to be delivered at the camporee. The Trading Post will have left over items only and will not be stocked as it has been during past camporees. Pre-ordering is necessary to receive the goods that you and your unit require.
The theme of the 2014 Camporee is "Messengers of Peace". Launched in September 2011, Messengers of Peace is a global initiative designed to inspire millions of young men and women in more than 220 countries and territories to work toward peace. Using state of the art social media, the initiative lets Scouts from around the world share what they've done and inspire fellow Scouts to undertake similar efforts in their own communities. The initiative is inspired by the World Scout Committee, administered by the World Scout Bureau, and driven by youth volunteers worldwide.
The New Jersey State Police and National Guard Camporee will be one of the largest scouting activities in the country in 2014. The State Police and National Guard are committed to making our communities better and pursue peace at home and abroad. Many resources of these two organizations are committed to helping people in need. Therefore we are challenging every scout to participate in a Messengers of Peace project.
