Klondike Derby Penguin March 2019

Camp Robert Drake is the site of the annual winter camping challenge for Boy Scouts, Venturers, and their sleds.  Recent history has shown strong competitions from the units of the council.  All Boy Scout troops and Venturing crews are encouraged to start practicing for exceptional achievement in cold-weather activities.  Cheer for your favorite troop or crew at the big event on Saturday, January 26, 2019 on the banks of the Salt Fork!

Adventure in Sapce!

One of the most fun options of each Cub Scout Adventure Camp is the theme and the camp staff craziness. For 2019, outer space is the location for the out-of-door action with rocket men and aliens visiting the banks of the Salt Fork. Each program area becomes a far off planet with canoeing craters and archery target rings. Start making your own countdown to one of the two special Adventure Camps in July of 2019.

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.
