Fall Campout 2023-2024
The Mighty Croix Nation ventured south to Camp Tecumseh in early October for the first of three campouts this hunting season. While the weather definitely had a fall crisp in the air, the entire nation was thankful that the Great Spirit ensured we stayed dry during the weekend. The Princesses and Dads were able to take part in a number of great activities, including archery and riflery, hiking, canoeing, rock climbing, candle making, gaga ball, various slides and other outdoor activities.
There were a number of activities and competitions within Croix Nation as well during the weekend, including the best decorated cabin (congratulations again Fox Tribe!), best pumpkin decorating and also awards for biggest eater, friendliest tribes and others. The highlight of the weekend was likely the AIMS walk where the Princesses and Dads showed off their knowledge of the updated AIMS on their journey to the Council Fire. Welcome to all of our new members and congratulations to those who were granted the honor of Haylushka at this campout. A special thanks to all of those serving on the Longhouse and the Elders of the program for continuing to make this one of the best programs for Dads and Daughters in IL.
We can't wait to see everyone again at the winter campout in February!
