This year’s District Powwow is just around the corner. Summer will be here before you know it and the Powwow will kick off on June 26h.

WOW! We have some exciting things in store for you at this year’s Powwow

We will once again be providing hot meals at the Powwow giving you the option to participate in the meal plan or bring your own food. The meal plan will allow you to leave your cooking gear home, forget about the fuss of preparing food and cleaning up, eat quickly, and give you and your boys more opportunity to enjoy the Powwow fun and activities.

New this year is a 300 feet long zip line that will exhilerate the boys as they travel down this high speed ride.We will also once again have the dual super sonic waterslide open allowing the boys to splash down and cool off after an exciting 100 foot ride.

We will have a lot of popular activities for the boys. Some of the activities include:

  • Swimming in Ye Ole Water Hole in the Tuscarora Creek
  • Frontiersmen Camping Fellowship Demonstrations including blacksmithing and donut making
  • Automotive Pit Crew Challenge
  • Trades demonstrations to include carpentry, surveying, engineering, eletrical, plumbing, bee keeping, and much more
  • Water Baptism in the Creek on Saturday afternoon
  • Ranger Kids Day
  • Rifle Shoot
  • Skeet Shoot

What else will be happening?

We also have a lot of new activities for the boys that you will find more information about in the Powwow packet. Some of the activities include:

  • An arts & talent competition
  • The FCF village will be set up again for all interested and prospective members to check out as well as existing members.
  • If you have boys in your outpost that have not been baptized in water, plan to have them come down to the Tuscarora Creek for a life changing experience that will be held Saturday afternoon.
  • There will also be plenty of fun, games and prizes for the Ranger Kids who are always shown a great time by our Ranger Kids Coordinator, George Pentz. There will be crafts, bible quiz, barrel train, obstacle course, water slide,games, candy scamble, devotion with Dick Gruber, and plenty of prizes.
