Free Camping at Camp Drake

Council Properties Chairman Jeff Ping has announced that service-minded Packs, Troops, and Crews, of the Prairielands Council can earn free campsite camping at Camp Drake by participating in Tool Time Work Days this spring.  Any council units that provide service to each of the three Tool Time Work Days on Saturdays, March 18, April 8, and May 13 will be awarded the TOOL TIME GOLD CARD, which will earn the unit free campsite camping for a calendar year for August, 2017 to July of 2018.   The volunteer service requirement must exceed 9 total Scouts, leaders, volunteers, or 50% of the unit’s current membership   (whichever is greater)   from the unit.  The Tool Time Work Days are camp clean-up events, where supporters of Camp Drake assist in the process of getting our grounds and facilities ready for summer. Tool Time projects include tasks such as raking, brush removal, trail maintenance, and firewood preparation.  The work day schedule runs from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, with a lunch provided for all participants.  BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE…Any pack, troop, or crew who qualifies for the Tool Time Gold Card will be awarded at Camp Drake Pool party in August, which will grant the unit 4 hours of open swim time in primetime weather!
