Beltloop-A-Palooza Postponed!

Thank you for your interest in the Cub Scout Belt Loopalooza at Jewel Cave National Monument! We are excited about the potential of this program and the opportunity to provide an engaging and memorable experience for Cub Scouts and their families.

However, due to increased visitation from Wind Cave’s tour cancellations, an on-site construction project, and limited staff and presenters, we have decided to postpone the Cub Scout Belt Loopalooza until September. Rescheduling will allow us to focus resources on the Loopalooza and create an educational and entertaining event that supports the Boy Scouts of America.
We apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause and appreciate your flexibility. Please check with the Black Hills Area Council for updates in the coming months, and plan to join us in the fall for the Cub Scout Belt Loopalooza!

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.”
