Each spring, the Sweetwater District organizes a Camporee for Boy Scouts and Webelos in the Sweetwater area.

Typically, the Camporee involves Scout Patrol competitions, with events such as: hiking preparedness, fire building, knot tying, first aid, emergency preparedness, pioneering, citizenship, patrol mystery event (team building), outdoor cooking, camping or orienteering. The scouts usually camp, compete and cook by patrol. The patrol will have a patrol name, patrol flag, patrol cheer or yell and a patrol leader. Patrols are usually made of six to eight scouts, a patrol duty roster is made and posted so patrol responsibilities are rotated, like: head cook, assistant cook, clean up, KP, fire builder, and water duty.
