October 10-12, 2014 at Alameda County Fairgrounds

For Scouts and Non-Scout Youth in the San Francisco & Alameda Counties

 

Vision

Provide a singular, unique and exceptional outdoor experience for all Scouts 1st – 12th grade in the San Francisco & Alameda Counties. This event will provide activities and feature program elements that help to create interest and increase our Scouts’ and youths’ knowledge in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It will also provide some of the traditional elements of a large Scouting activity. Our goal is to encourage participation and seek the support of community agencies and businesses relevant to the fields of STEM. A key benefit for our youth will be the opportunity to achieve rank advancement and to receive first-hand exposure to companies and professionals in the science fields.  

Dates, Location and Attendance

The event will be held on October 10-12, 2014 at the Alameda County Fairgrounds.  Anticipated attendance includes 1,200 campers and 2,300 Scout day participants, plus an additional 500 outside youth-group participants, for a total attendance of 5,000.

Key Program Elements

STEM helps develop the natural curiosity of children and encourage their sense of wonder. 

 

Through hands-on activities and learning experiences, scouting helps guide young people on the trail to a lifelong appreciation for self-improvement, community involvement, and the outdoors. Chemistry, astronomy, map and compass, ecology, environmental science, geology, aviation, and insect study are only a few topics that scouts explore. With technology scouting activities expose youth to technology galore. Boy scouts learn how to apply scouting’s leading edge — explain, demonstrate, guide, enable—as they mentor younger scouts and teach them new skills.
