1941

          Crescent Bay Council decided to hold its annual camping event as part of the Camp Josepho Dedication celebration scheduled for June, 1941. For the first time, a separate group of events were held by the Districts beforehand to determine which troops would be eligible to attend the Dedication. The District events adopted the Camporee name while the Council event a month later returned to the Camporal name used prior to 1938.
          The Council made District Camporee certificates for the District events that included space for the District name and event location. Winning Troops from the District Camporees received a special District Camporal certificate for attending the Camp Josepho Dedication. Evidence suggests the same District Camporee certificates were used in 1942 and 1943 as well. A new
District Camporee certificate was designed for 1945.
