Labor Day Camping Weekend

All Scouts and Scouting family members are invited to enjoy Labor Day Weekend at Camp Robert Drake this year.  Experience a woodland retreat away and get back to nature.  Families can enjoy the facilities at Camp Drake at their own pace.  The weekend will be open for tent camping and limited activities for all ages. All of the campsites are available for use.   Meals are not included and alcohol is not permitted.


Lost and Found

Thank you for attending the 2017 Summer Camp at Camp Drake.  I hope everyone had a fantastic time!   As always, after summer camp, we have loads of lost and found.   We have everything from clothes, towels, water bottles, hats, belts, shoes, knives, Scout handbook, etc.   If you are missing something, please be sure to check the lost and found at the Champaign office.   Anything that is not claimed by September 30, 2017 will either be donated or thrown away.


Smilin Pumpkin Outdoor Sports Fest!

Scouter Mom's Review of Camp Drake

Tools Needed for Camp Drake

Camp Drake would appreciate any hand or power tools for its workshop, garden tools for outdoor work, or recreational equipment that you no longer need.

Hand tools or power tools, such as screwdrivers, pliers, saws, etc., help with the many mechanical requirements of camp maintenance.

Garden tools, like rakes, shovels, or weed whips, allow additional volunteers to complete projects on service days.

Any outdoor recreation equipment will be put to good use with the Scouts at summer camp.

From balls & bats to camping gear, from golfing supplies to boating equipment, please contact Mike Graham at the Raymond Lee Scout Service Center at 217-356-7291 if you can provide a gift for Camp Drake.
