The Gillette News Record reports the city's Cam-plex events center is getting ready, with plans to level a field for the campers. Cam-plex officials estimate that bringing in 600 portable toilets alone will cost around $350,000.

The event takes place every five years and has been in Osh Kosh, Wisconsin, since 1999. Organizers say they mainly just want a new setting for the Camporee.
