Little Sioux Scout Ranch Grand Reopening

Remembering the Past/Rebuilding for the Future


Hopefully everyone has heard about the grand re-opening celebration to be held at the Little Sioux Scout Ranch on May 2, 2009! Ceremonies begin at 10 a.m. on May 2 and are free to the public. Saturday, day-only activities for youth and Scouts are $5.00 per person. Youth and adult camping is available for all registered Packs, Troops and Crews from May 1-3 and is $15.00 per person.


Register online or download the form if you are registering for more than 25 people. Saturday day-only activities currently scheduled include an obstacle course, a monkey bridge, an orienteering booth, a GPS course, hands-on rope making, a cooking demonstration and handicap awareness. There will also be a time capsule that each Scout organization will have the opportunity to contribute one small item to be buried for future Scouters to discover.


With all of the rebuilding that is going on, you will also have the opportunity to tour many of the new facilities that have been and are being constructed. There are also plans for live entertainment, presentations, awards and so much more throughout the day.


If you are planning on attending the Ohwahnasee, Trailblazer & Goldenrod three-district spring camporee as part of the grand re-opening, please fill out this registration form only and do not fill out the grand re-opening registration.

Storm Stories, the series that chronicles the true stories of survivors and rescuers battling amazing weather events, returns to The Weather Channel.

Volunteer at Little Sioux Scout Ranch

The Mid-America Council will be implementing a new campmaster program at Little Sioux Scout Ranch. This person will be the camp host on weekends when troop, district or council events are going on. The camp host will assist the units with check-in, registration, explaining rules of camp, and be the go-to person if they need anything. Read more. To register as a campmaster, click here.
