Feedback from attendees of the Zombie Invasion Camporee held in October, 2010 at Camp Hahobas
I was not able to attend ... but all the boys in my troop loved it. LOVED IT!
The "uniform" for our last meeting was the bloody T-shirts.
It sounds like you did a fabulous job in your planning and execution of this event.
My thanks to you and your many volunteers. (zombieteers?)
I want to applaud you and your crew for a very well thought out and organized Camporee.
My son went without knowing anyone and had an amazing time. I have to admit I enjoyed
myself as well very much. At one point you asked for constructive criticism, and the
only nit that may be served by a bit of picking was the sword element. I see how
the sword may have been provided in an effort for balance or for enough time for the
"cure" to be recovered, but I think that it was asking a lot of adrenalin pumped boys to
pull back from zombie-whacking, especially with the build-up and dead of night. Thank,
thank-you for all of you and your staff's hard work and preparation- it showed!!
Mitch Darden, Troop 1526
First, let me again say that you guys put on an incredible Camporee this past weekend.
The amount of time and effort that went into it was truly impressive and the result was
that the boys had a great experience. Thank you for all your time and effort to make
Randy Smith, Troop 330
Compliments to you and your staff on running the event. It was the most well organized
of the Camporees I have attended since we joined the troop.
Eric Wilson, Assistant Scoutmaster, Troop 27
Back from Zombie Invasion!! great weather, great weekend. scouts had fun even when Shane
twisted his ankle in the Zombie attack and got to ride around in the Humvee for an hour.
Think us humans won the attack so all is good. Staff was great. Scouts from Troop 248
did another fantastic job with the opening Flag Ceremony.
Gary Bishop, Troop 248 (on FaceBook)
You all did a great job on this year's Camporee. The boys had a great time. I don't know
who was in charge of the weather, but they must have some great connections.
Cindy Iversen - Troop 248
While I've never been much of a sci-fi fan, I thought you guys did a phenomenal job with
the production. The roving H2 with eerie lights, sounds and voices. The MREs. The
costumes and the setting. All led to a most unique experience. You probably missed your
calling by not becoming a film director! :)
So thanks for the incalculable hours you must have put into organizing and running this operation.
John Carlson, Troop 212
You have a great group there. No wonder it is such a popular Camporee!
PK Dan, Staff Cook
On behalf of the scouts and adult leaders of Troop 71 thanks for all of the hard work.
This truly was a superb event.
I believe many of the boys will remember this weekend as one of the very best in their scouting experience.
Jim Sagen, Troop 71
