Come out and have fun while displaying your scout activity knowledge

with this fun and challenging series of team events.

We have some new events and some favorite activities always requested by the Scouts.

Note this event is designed for Boy Scouts

(Webelos ok) but not age-appropriate for Cub Scouts.


Teams will consist ideally of 4-5 members but teams may be smaller or larger

depending on the number of attendees and troops’ preferences.

Troops are encouraged to have multiple teams to participate,

learn, compete and have fun in these scout-related events

that could be blind-folded tent raising, first aid, archery, bait casting,

metal detecting, gold panning, airsoft rifle and possible additional events.


Stations will be arranged on Cabela’s front West pad and possibly other areas outside the store.

Each team must complete the event or task at each of the stations to get a final score.


Check-in opens at 8:30 a.m. the day of the challenge and the event will start shortly after 9 a.m.,

immediately following the opening flag ceremony.

Cabela’s outfitters will help organize the events but we will also rely on scout leaders in attendance

as well as some recruited older scouts to serve as “event captains”.

Valuable Cabela’s-brand team prizes will be given to the top three teams for use by their troop.

An awards’ ceremony will be held during lunch on the East pad, with everything done by about 12:30 pm.

Please contact Jamie Klund at Cabela’s to pre-register

via email at or call at 829-4128

with any questions or to volunteer as a an event team captain.

Lunch is provided so we need a head count Tuesday the week of the event,

thus the reason for the pre-registration deadline of April 25th.
