PPC committees are generally run by volunteer Scouters. From the Alumni committee to the Youth Executive committee, tables abound in the ballroom area with information and ideas to make your 2019-2020 Scouting year GREAT! Stop by and see what’s in store for your group.

PPC Districts – Munsee, Raritan Valley, Watchung Mountain, Black River, Sussex & Fishawack

Stop by and greet your volunteer district leaders that plan many district events (klondikes, cub camping, troop camping, etc.). Towns in Patriots’ Path Council are part of a geographical district. If you don’t know which district you are in, ask at the registration/welcome desk on your way in and they will let you know.

Seminars  
Committees host seminars or training session for our members. Check them out on the seminar tab. The seminars are in the upstairs area of Birchwood Manor. The stairs are located across from the Front Door. Ask one of the greeters at the Alumni hi-top table near the stairs if you have questions.
