Indiana State Fair Boy Scout Basecamp Volunteers


The 2017 Indiana State Fair is quickly approaching and Crossroads of America Council will be welcoming fairgoers through the Scouting Basecamp during the fair! We are in need of Scouts and families to help volunteer to run activities on days that the Basecamp will be open to showcase Scouting in the best way possible to Hoosier families.

We are seeking troops to sign up for a day of service. This would require a minimum of five individuals to a maximum of 15 per shift. Shifts will be 9 am to 3 pm and 2:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Individual Scouts can sign up for a shift without their troop here for community service hours.

Basecamp will be open on Tuesday, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 9 am to 8:30 pm. Volunteers will assist with running the activities (flint & steel, model campsite, community partner activities, etc.). Scouts, leaders and parents are encouraged to wear a Class B or Scouting tshirt with khaki or Scout shorts and comfortable shoes. In addition, after completing his or her shift, volunteers are welcome to stay to enjoy the fair.
