I have previously written about the World Brotherhood Camporee, an annual event which alternated between New York and Canada. This years event will take place at Wellesley Island State Park, Wellesley Island, New York on September 28-29-30, 2012.

Mike Hinman sends along some details

The Longhouse Council of Syracuse, New York will be hosting this year’s World Brotherhood Camporee at Wellesley Island State Park in the St. Lawrence River from September 28-30 (annual event since 1974). We expect 3500 US and Canadian Scouts and Scouters with hundreds trading Scout stuff on the 29th. Whole units or individuals can attend by applying through cnyscouts.org. We have an entire park with available camp grounds and cottages

“I believe that liberty is the only genuinely valuable thing that men have invented, at least in the field of government, in a thousand years. I believe that it is better to be free than to be not free, even when the former is dangerous and the latter safe. I believe that the finest qualities of man can flourish only in free air – that progress made under the shadow of the policeman’s club is false progress, and of no permanent value. I believe that any man who takes the liberty of another into his keeping is bound to become a tyrant, and that any man who yields up his liberty, in however slight the measure, is bound to become a slave.” – H.L. Mencken
