2024 Scout Rank Advancement Day

Order of the Arrow Lodge 55 will be hosting a Scout Rank Advancement Day on Saturday, May 4 at Camp Drake from 9am-3pm. At no cost to your Scouts or Troop, Illini Lodge 55 members will be teaching Scout skills required for rank advancement to Scout Rank, Tenderfoot Rank, Second Class Rank, and First Class Rank. The areas of instruction will include First Aid, Knots, Tools, Cooking, Navigation, Nature, and Citizenship.


This is a great opportunity for your new First Year Scouts and other Scouts who are working on Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class or First Class to get many of the requirements for these ranks completed. This will also be an opportunity for your Troops to bring your First Year Scouts out to Camp Drake and familiarize them with the camp ahead of the summer.


There is no cost for your Scouts or Troop to attend. Those Scouts attending will only need to bring with them their Scout Handbooks, a lunch, water bottle, and rain gear (& other weather-related clothing, as needed). BSA registered leaders from your Troop will also need to be present with your Scouts.


Further information and sign up will be coming soon.
