SEBASTIAN – Boy Scouts from across Indian River County will be allowed to descend upon the Sebastian Municipal Airport for their annual Camporee, the Sebastian City Council decided.
The event will include overnight camp-outs in tents and sleeping bags, aviation demonstrations, and even a Dutch oven Cobbler Cook-off.
The three-day Camporee is scheduled for March 4 through 6, with the official kick-off on Saturday, March 5, when skydivers are expected to parachute near camp with the Boy Scouts and American flags in tow.
The agreement to allow the Indian River Boy Scouts District Gulf Stream Council to use the Sebastian Municipal Airport garnered unanimous support from the Sebastian City Council, which approved it without discussion.
Along with demonstrations and the cook-off, the Scouts are expected to take flights on various aircraft and participate in skill-building classes.
The Cub Scouts will arrive on Saturday and will learn about rockets, launching water bottles and competing in a Rocket Derby.
