2018 Forged In Fire Camporee

Great weekend Thank You GCBA & LAMA!  Everyone had an awsome time hammering metal!

Check out photos below.

The 2018 Istrouma Area Council “Forged in Fire” blacksmithing weekend will be held at Camp Avondale on August 31-September 2, 2018. The cost is $20.00 per youth and $10.00 per adult. The theme for this weekend is Blacksmithing and Metal Working. Scouts will be conducting “HANDS ON” training in the art of Blacksmithing with professional help from the Gulf Coast Blacksmiths Association and the Louisiana Metalsmith Association (LAMA). There will be forges set up and Scouts will earn the Metal Working merit badge. Scouts will also make their very own forged item to keep.  There will be other stations for your enjoyment and learning. A Blacksmithing Trading Post will also be set up to buy forged items made by GCBA and LAMA, so please remember to bring a few dollars.

To make this event successful, Istrouma Area Council needs YOUR Troop’s participation.

Council-themed campouts or events will continue, with more to come!
