Competitive Events

Competitive events are some of the most exciting events at Camp-O-Ree. It is our desire to provide competitions that are both exciting and unique, while encouraging a spirit of teamwork and confidence.

Competitive events fall into three categories: individual, team, and chapter. Individual and team events focus on skills useful in leadership and personal development; chapter events recognize overall achievement and performance in chapter organization and growth.

We invite you to check your Event Schedule or Camp-O-Ree Handbook for times and locations of each of the following events.
