Prairielands Council Vice President of Program, John Marquardt is encouraging all Prairielands Council troops to conduct a fun camp-themed meeting for Camp Drake this spring. A vital function of a quality troop program is a weeklong outdoor experience and a “Camp Promo Night” will help prepare Scouts, families and leaders for the event.   After your troop sets up a date and location for Camp Drake, a special promotional program, a “Camp Light Night”, can be scheduled to excite the Scouts and inform the parents. Illini Lodge will provide DrakeLights for all Scouts Be sure to invite potential new members in addition to the fifth grade Webelos in your area. Start planning now to get your troop ready for a great camp opportunity.
