Notes for Scouts:

  • Attention All Cooks! You have an opportunity to throw down with your fellow scouts:
    • Iron Chief Troop 210 Patrol Breakfast Challenge Saturday morning. The secret ingredient will be Maple Syrup (to be purchase as part of your patrol food).  Strategize on fifteen dollar night with your patrol and come up with your winning recipe. Present ONE large hearty serving to the Old Goat Patrol for judging.
  • There will be a District Cooking Contest this year. The competition will be one-pot dutch oven cooking.  There are no restrictions on what may be prepared, just that it has to be a single meal in one pot.  Get your recipes ready and they will be collected for a District Camporee Cookbook.
  • Scouts make sure to bring:
    • Rain gear is an essential item, regardless of the weather forecast!
    • A canteen or Nalgene bottle.
    • Flashlight or headlamp
    • Sturdy boots
    • Bug spray and Sunscreen are good ideas too.
    • Bring a bag supper for Friday
    • Wear your class A shirt on Friday, but don't forget class B for Saturday activities!

Directions:

  • Take US-1 south from Raleigh past Sanford to the US-15/501 exit to Carthage and Pinehurst (you will see the Regal Inn on your right just before you exit to the right).
  • Take US-15/501 South to the outskirts of Carthage where the speed limit drops to 35 mph (enforced!).
  • Where 15/501 veers left and continues to Pinehurst, you will continue to head straight (west) where NC-24/27 peels off into Carthage.
  • Continue into town until you reach a traffic circle which goes around the town’s courthouse.
  • Turn right and go halfway around the traffic circle (as if you had gone straight through the courthouse) and continue on NC-24/27 to the outskirts of town.
  • After you have passed a couple of convenience markets and a graveyard on your right, you will come to a “Y” intersection where you will turn left onto Bethlehem Church Rd. (On your right will be a green highway information sign with “Occoneechee Scout Camps” and an arrow pointing the way). What used to be an old gas station will be on your left in the “Y”. You will come to a very sharp curve almost immediately after turning ... go slow!
  • After about 8 miles of twisting country road, you will come to a stop sign.
  • After stopping, go through the intersection for less than a mile.
  • On your left you will pass a brick Methodist church before coming to the service entrance to Camp Durant.
  • The entrance to Durant is about a half-mile further on the left.
