Beltloop-A-Palooza CANCELLED!

Due to cold temperatures expected on Saturday, October 12th, the Cub Scout Belt Loopalooza at Jewel Cave has been cancelled. The Loopalooza is designed to be an outdoor event, making weather an uncontrollable factor. We hope you understand that the health and safety of Scouts, guardians, and volunteers always comes first.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this change of plans may cause. Please plan on joining us for the Loopalooza in July, 2020.

If you cave any questions or concerns, please feel free to call (605) 673-8300 or send an email to jeca_interpretation@nps.gov.”

Thank you for a great weekend at Busy Beaver/OA Induction!

What a great weekend of service to camp. Busy Beaver and Crazy Horse Lodge Order Of The Arrow Spring Induction combined for a total of 264 hours of service to camp. Our camp Ranger Brent Nelson was so happy with all of the work that was completed. Just think about if the Ranger had to complete all of this work on his own. . . working 8 hours a day, 5 days a week would take the ranger 7 weeks to complete all of these projects.

Thank you all for all of your hard work and dedication this really was a weekend of cheerful service and proves the old saying that “Many hands make light work.”
