Camp Trading Post Upgrade

All Scouts and Scouters in attendance at Camp Robert Drake this summer have noticed an upgrade in the outlook in central camp.  The wise customers in the camp store are looking much better as they walk out the Trading Post "Out" door with great looking Camp Drake t-shirts.  The highlighted fashion wear is the tiger-tie dye Camp Drake shirt.  The stylish appearance,  along with a tasty slushie, has been worn with a smile on the front porch of the T. Post.   All Scouts and Scouters are encouraged to visit on a family night in July, either 7/13,  7/20, or 7/26.  Special deals will start to arise as the summer seasons starts to wind down.



2016 Fall Camporee

The Prairielands Council Fall Camporee is coming September 9-11, 2016 at our own Camp Drake.  With the them "Scout Olympics" there's sure to be something for everyone.   Click here for more information.



You do not want to miss this!  Come one, come all there is fun to be had, fellowship and POPCORN information and packets.  Sample the product.  This is information that you really want to share with your unit leadership and popcorn colonels.  It is definitely worth your time and effort to attend the popcorn kickoff and kickoff roundtable Wed. Aug. 10 at 6:30pm at the LDS Church on Windsor. Free fried chicken dinner for all who attend.  Click on the attachment for all the information.



Blast off into the fall!  We are getting into rocketry as an exciting addition to programming this fall.  In order to accomplish this safely we have training scheduled for leaders and district launch dates.  Each scout who joins Scouting this fall receives a rocket and engine and can participate in these activities.
