INT'L CAMPOREE CERTIFICATION

Session Names

International Cadet Camporee Certification is comprised of one session for cadets, and two or three for counselors and junior counselors.  In the past, they were named "sessions one, two, and three."  In light of changes to our certification events, they have been renamed so as to be less confusing.

  • Counselor Orientation used to be called Session I, and is only for counselors and junior counselors.  In this session, you will be trained in the ministry of camping, and campsite prep and leadership.

  • Registration used to be called Session II, and has been made option.  Counselors who will register themselves and others may attend to fill out registrations and pay for them.  **Note** Registrations can also be sent in through the mail.

  • Skills Certification used to be called Session III.  Although this session takes place at the GVRC Campground, it no longer features an overnight campout, but rather a Saturday of practicing cooking skills and setting up an ICC structure.

All events are open to all cadets and counselors from Grand Valley (GV) or Rush Creek (RC).  Other councils may participate, please contact Paul De Windt if you have interest.
