Scout Show 2017, Mar 10th &11th: Sword Jousting, 360° Photo Booth, and Enthused Scouts

Kids surround a giant derby track as the race begins. A woman dressed as Elsa decorates a child’s face. A Scout holds a rifle, aiming at his target. All  were seen at Utah’s Outdoor Expo and Boy Scout Show in 2016.

This year, prepare for more crazy fun sights because the event’s making a comeback.  It  will be held on March 10th-11th at the UCCU Center at Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah.

Purchase a smart savers card, and you can get in free. The card includes thousands of dollars worth of free stuff and discounts, and 70% of the sale goes to support local Scouting.

Scout Show 2017 has a variety of activities and information. Here is a glimpse of what you’ll see this time at the Utah County Scout Show:

  • Dutch Oven Cooking. Hone those chef skills.
  • Jousting. Make a sword. Then, joust with it.
  • Astronomy Tent. Aren’t the stars so beautiful?
  • Archery. Ready. Aim. Bulls eye.
  • Geocaching. The better version of “X marks the spot”.
  • Welding. Useful, fun, and totally epic.
  • Rock climbing. Can you make it to the top?
  • Online Registration Training. Because we know the process can be frustrating.
  • Camping Info. There are so many options.
  • 360° Photo Booth. So much better than just a photo booth.
  • MUCH, MUCH more.

Here are some video clips from previous years:
