1941 Camp-O-Ral
Camp Josepho, Rustic Canyon

        There are no known ribbons, leathers or patches from the 1941 Camp-O-Ral.

        When Camp Josepho opened in 1941, the combined Camp-O-Ral & Dedication was the first major event held at the new Camp. 1941 also marked the first district Camporees. Troops competed at the district Camporees and the winning troops were invited to attend the Camp-O-Ral.
