Scouting’s Fall Festival is this Saturday September 22nd. This year’s festival brings new activities and displays.

Fall Festival will be from 11:00am to 3:30pm. Location is once again at Camp Russell at the Jack Graves Scout Reservation. Parking is at the college of NSU, just east of Jack Graves. Join our festival as we celebrate the fall and scouting. Watch the AT-6 fly over, see a live Mountain Man camp, wander through the vintage scout camp and play lots of fun games with your fellow scouts of Indian Nations Council.

We will also have a canned food drive.  So please help out those in need by bringing a canned food item (or 2).  No glass please! Let’s make this the best collection ever by scout groups.

Another new addition to our festival this year is the Pioneering Contest. For those units that are hosting an activity area, you are invited to join in the fun. Read more…

  • What exactly is Pioneering you ask?  Pioneering is the act of creating, designing and building projects, as solutions to a problem or challenge with the use of rope, natural materials, and ingenuity or backwoods or common sense engineering.
  • Why do we do Pioneering?  For fun; foster competition; as a teaching method for developing basic scout skills such as knot tying, splicing, lashing and use of woods tools; develop and promote team work and cooperation; practice the art of leadership and develop a sense of accomplishment , self-confidence and self-reliance.
  • Who can make the best lashings?  See the attached flyer for the rules and let us know that you would like to participate.

Bring the whole family and participate in fun filled activities.  See you all there!
