Fighting Illini Scout Camporee Updates


The Fighting Illini Scout Camporee returns for its second year on October 14th and we have some updates and exciting new opportunities to make you aware of!


First, you should regularly be checking the FISC webpage at for updates as the event draws near and updates will become more frequent.  The cost is still only $35 to watch a Big Ten football game, dinner, a patch, a movie on the big screen at the stadium, and camping at Memorial Stadium!  We hope to have additional updates posted soon including detailing the dinner menu and the movie selection.


In year two, we are introducing a new way to register for this event through Tentaroo.  Registration through Tentaroo should take no more than 5 minutes as we only need to know the number of Scouts, Adults, non-Scout youth, and non-Scout adults as well as any food allergy concerns and whether or not you plan to camp on Friday evening at Camp Drake.  If you need assistance registering, please contact Susan Coller at or 217-531-0219.


In addition to registering through Tentaroo, there are incentives to sign-up as early as possible.  The sooner you sign-up, the better your ticket location will be for the football game!  Payment is not due at the time of registering, but must be paid either online or at the Scout Office by September 29th.  That's also the last day to make any changes to numbers without forfeiting the payment or paying the $10 late fee.  Even if you register prior to September 29th, the registration will not be considered complete and on-time unless payment has also been received.


You don't want to miss this event!  It's open to ALL Scouting units including Girl Scout units and out-of-council units, so tell your neighbors and friends near and far about this event.  It's also a great recruiting opportunity.  The Fighting Illini are looking to be more improved this year on the field and you won't want to miss this opportunity to them and to camp at historic Memorial Stadium!
