Come celebrate with a CARNIVAL of FUN! Experience an Arena Show featuring Wild West Performers complete with whip cracking tricks, magic, juggling extraordinaire and fire manipulation! Also on the playbill is the Lenexa Police Department introducing the trained dogs of their Canine Unit. Next you will have the opportunity to experience up close a view of the Raptors of the Dayshift; meet the Hawks that hunt the skies!
You won’t want to miss a visit to the Great House “Museum”. On exhibit will not only be the history of the Lodge, there will also be plenty of Scouting memorabilia and other history to view.
You will have the opportunity to carve out a piece of history by participating in the carving of a Totem Pole to commemorate the 75th Anniversary Celebration.
The shooting ranges will be open, Archery will be available and the climbing tower will be offered to those who wish to scale its heights!
And have we mentioned the food? Beginning with the opening night Extravaganza of music and food in the dining hall, the Carnival atmosphere will continue to the lunch event the next day.
The evening events will be a formal affair with a Banquet Celebration followed by the Vigil Call and the Dedication of Whippoorwill.
There will be games to play and exhibits to visit. Camp Naish will be an exciting celebration for all. And for the first time, non-Arrowmen will be allowed to camp for this weekend.
You will not want to miss your opportunity to experience this historical celebration and receive your unique 75th Anniversary Coup and Patch. See you there!
