There has been a lot of questions about who can attend.  We have added a policy section to the website.  Here is what it says:

Camporee Attendance, Registration and Payment Policies

Attendance

Who may attend Camporee?
Units (Troops, Crews, and Posts) from Seneca, White Oak, and Potomac districts may register using the event web site.  Units (Troops, Crews, and Posts) from outside these districts may attend but the web site is not set up to handle these requests.  Please contact the Camporee Director.

Camping arrangements
While at Camporee, each unit is assigned a campsite.  Program time (stations) are organized around Patrols.  We target activities to handle a Patrol size of 6-8 Scouts.

Webelos
Webelos Dens may attend as part of a Troop.  They register as part of a Troop and their members travel to stations as part of a Patrol.  Webelos may not attend these activities on their own.  The activities/stations are designed for Troop age Scouts and it is intended that these Scouts assist the Webelos.  Some activities are not appropriate for Webelos Scouts.  These activities will be paired with a Webelos appropriate version of the activity.

Webelos may arrive with Troop on Friday night and camp two nights or may arrive on Saturday morning and camp one night at the discretion of the Troop. Administratively they are considered part of the Troop except that they will submit a separate roster at checkin. 

Normal Webelos camping rules apply with regard to adult leadership etc.  BSA policy on this can be found at http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/HealthandSafety/GSS/gss03.aspx

LDS
LDS units (Troops, Crews, and Posts) may attend.  It is understood that they will depart camporee after Saturday night campfire.

LDS Webelos may not camp at camporee.  This decision comes from the LDS community and not BSA or camporee. They may be able to attend for the day on Saturday.  This should be discussed with your Stake Scouting Liaison.

Webelos attending for the day on Saturday
Webelos Dens may attend camporee just for the day Saturday.  They must still register and pay as part of the sponsoring Troop.  As with Webelos that camp overnight they are to be inserted into Patrols for activities.

Webelos Dens attending for the day on Saturday are welcome to arrive at the normal Saturday check in time.  They must depart camporee before dark Saturday evening. They may eat dinner with their Troop at the discretion of the Troop.

Cub Scouts visiting Camporee
Cub Scouts (Pack members younger than Webelos) may not participate in camporee.  A Pack may visit camporee to observe the activities.  They will not participate in stations or other activities.  We have no age appropriate activities for them. If they choose to visit they must be sponsored by a Troop and have a Troop adult as guide for their entire visit to the camporee.

Siblings
This is a Scouting event.  It is not appropriate to bring siblings to the event.

Registration
Troops, Crews, and Posts that are part of Seneca, White Oak, or Potomac districts register via the event web site. Units from outside these districts must contact the Camporee Director. Rosters will be collected at check-in.

Webelos register as part of a Troop. No separate Webelos registrations will be accepted. Rosters will be collected at Troop check-in.

Webelos attending for the day Saturday must register as part of a Troop. Rosters will be collected at Troop check-in.

Cub Scout visitors must register as part of their shepard Troop. Rosters will be collected a Troop check-in.

Payment policy
Troops, Crews, and Posts pay in advance online.  There is a separate campsite and person fee.  

LDS Troops, Crews, and Posts register online except that for Seneca Stake the payment is handled directly by the Stake (not paid online). For LDS units outside of Seneca Stake, we have no arrangements with other Stakes.  Please contact your Stake to see what their policies are.  Your camporee contact in this matter should be the Camporee Director.

Webelos payment is handled as part of Troop registration.

Webelos Dens attending for the day on Saturday are charged half price. Camporee patches will be awarded to these Scouts if we have adequate supply.

Cub Scout visitors attend free.  They will not receive camporee patches.
