Family Fiesta Weekend Camporee --- See you in May 2025!

"Be Prepared" Theme

Family Fiesta is a weekend overnight campout for Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Bears, Webelos, and their family members.  This Spring event will introduce the Cub Scout and their family to some of the activities that might be experienced during our Summer Day Camp program.  Events and activities are run by Scouts BSA troops, Venturing BSA crews and the Order of the Arrow Talako Lodge members.  The Cub Scouts will get an opportunity to meet the Summer Day Camp staff and older Scout youth, and as an added bonus, experience all the fun and exciting activities that await them when they transition into Scouts BSA or Venturing programs for the older youth.

Program activities may include:  Archery, BB Guns, Obstacle Course, Challenge Wall, Leathercraft, Pioneering, First Aid, and a Saturday evening campfire.

For this weekend event, you have the option of arriving Friday night or Saturday morning, providing you the choice of camping under the stars for one or two nights. Delicious chef-prepared food made in our commercial camp kitchen is included!
