          In 1945, Crescent Bay Council launched a new event called Scout-O-Rama. Unlike camporees, camp-o-rals and summer camps, the Scout-O-Rama was an  opportunity for non-scouts and the community-at-large to find out what Scouting was all about. From the Council's perspective, Scout-O-Rama was the perfect way to increase exposure, raise money and grow the local scouting program. Adult leaders were able to solicit sponsorships from local merchants while cubs and scouts sold Scout-O-Rama tickets. The proceeds went to fund the Crescent Bay operating budget with a portion going back to the local pack, troop, post and ship.
          Scout-O-Rama started out as a District event and excepting for the Venice District S-O-R, was taken over by the Council in 1954.
