TAC CAMPING

Organized camping is a creative, educational experience in cooperative group living in the outdoors. It uses the natural surroundings to contribute significantly to physical, mental, spiritual, and social growth. Cub Scouting offers camping opportunities for Cub Scouts through day camps. Resident camps, Boy Scout Troop/Patrol and Webelos den/pack overnight campouts, and Council-organized family camps.

Meuse-Argonne Camporee:

The Transatlantic Council is proud to offer a camporee at the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery in Romagne-sous-Montfaucon, France. This camporee will pay special attention to the observance of the 100-year anniversary since the end of the Meuse-Argonne Battle. Units will be able to camp on the cemetery grounds and assist in the weekend’s activities. Scouts can also complete the requirements for the Sgt. York Historical Trail.

The Meuse-Argonne Offensive (also known as Battles of the Meuse-Argonne and the Meuse-Argonne Campaign) was a major part of the final Allied offensive of World War I that stretched along the entire Western Front. It was fought from September 26, 1918 until the Armistice of November 11, 1918, a total of 47 days. The Meuse-Argonne Offensive was the largest in United States military history, involving 1.2 million American soldiers. It was one of a series of Allied attacks known as the Hundred Days Offensive, which brought the war to an end. The battle cost 28,000 German lives, 26,277 American lives and an unknown number of French lives. It was the largest and bloodiest operation of World War I for the American Expeditionary Force (AEF). There are over 15,000 American souls interred at the cemetery.
