Eagles Nest Cabin Camp-out: Very similar to Swamp Fox with a 2-night stay in a cabin and organized activities for the scouts.

When: April 11,12& 13, 2014. Please arrive by 6pm Friday night as there is traditionally a bottle rocket launch that the boys take part in that evening. Please plan on having dinner prior to arriving, but there are some snacks provided later that evening at the Cracker Barrel. The majority of the organized scout activities take place throughout the day on Saturday, and that will include BB Guns, Archery, wood projects and many other fun skills. All 3 meals on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday morning will be served in the Dining Hall. People usually start heading home after breakfast and cleaning the cabin Sunday morning.

Where: (see map below) IMR (Indian Mound Reservation) at 36712 Indian Mound Rd in Oconomowoc

Cost: $40/person
