Overview:


There are several legends regarding the origins of what are known as “Scottish,” “Gaelic,” or “Celtic” Highland Games. The oldest legends of the tradition date back to the Roman invasions in the 2nd and 3rd centuries (AD), where Celtic warriors reputedly displayed their bravery and strength by performing feats of skill and power in front of the opposing Roman armies.


Variations of the origin describe tribal celebrations in which clans would come together throughout the year to hold a feast, which often included special foods, music, poetry, dance, and sports such as horse-racing, hunting, swimming, archery, and wrestling.


The most widely accepted tale describes the games as informal athletic tests by which kings and clan chiefs examined the agility, cunning, and physical strength of their clansmen. The victors of these trials were then awarded positions of leadership both on the battlefield and within the clan. The Highland Games or "Heavy Events" are the modern continuation of this ancient Celtic tradition.


Our “’Scoutish’ Highland Games” will combine these traditional Celtic origins, the competition of strength, endurance, and skill-- as well as coming together to celebrate and fellowship within our special tribe… as brother Scouts.


For the purposes of this Camporee and Games, the participating Troop Patrols will be competing as Clans. (Patrol = Clan.)
