Nightmare Challenge Mud Run
You’re a Scout leader. You envision yourself to be a rugged outdoorsman, prepared to tackle any challenge… Last year Cubmaster Brent Huffman of Pack 510 tackled the nightmare challenge and took first place! Of course everyone who tackles this challenge is a winner. Learn how far you can push yourself and the amazing things you can accomplish once you set you mind, and your body in motion. Who will beat Brent in 2015?
A portion of the proceeds comes back to support local Scouting. Visit this website to learn more:

We are pleased to announce that the new Straker Cabin is now available to rent for weekend camping. The heated cabin is located just off the main parking lot at MVSR. There are four sleeping rooms, each with two double bunk beds, for a total of 16 beds. Additionally, there is a large gathering space containing four picnic tables. A group larger than 16 could have several additional Scouts sleep in the gathering room. When renting the cabin, a unit will also get access to the flush toilet located at the Welcome Center just a few hundred feet from the cabin. There are additional rest room facilities in the nearby kybo at the Kiwanis shelter. Cooking is not allowed in the cabin – a fire ring will be located outside the building. Units are encouraged to bring cooking stoves for use outside the building if desired.
The cabin rental is just $75 per night, or $125 for a weekend rental.
Units wishing to rent the cabin should contact the Council Service Center at: 740-453-0571
Consider a great weekend at camp with a warm dry bed at night…. Hope to see you there!
