Family Fun Day at Camp Oakarro

The scout council for Lake County (NEIC) is VERY interested in learning how they can meet the needs of homeschoolers in our area and support us in our educational endeavors. This would be a great, FREE opportunity to see some of what they have to offer, and to put a bug in the right people’s ears as to what you would like to see offered.

The Boy Scouts of America invites boys and their families to Family Fun Day on May 17 or 18 at Camp Oakarro in Wadsworth, IL. Families can pick a session during those days to attend. Activities include STEM, fishing, bb guns, archery and more. More information including a map and registration link can be found at www.neic.org/familyfunday.
