Exciting Happenings at Camp in 2014
Popcorn at camp

Be sure to ask your Scout about the Tin Men at camp.  There are different games at Camp Cedars and Little Sioux Scout Ranch this year that involve our Popcorn Dynasty Tin Men!

Camp Cedars have 4 Tin Men hidden around the camp.  The Scouts will receive a bingo card to work on a bingo throughout the week.  On Thursday night at movie night we will draw a name for a gift certificate for the Trading Post.  
Little Sioux Scout Camp will also have 4 Tin Men hidden around the camp but they have the chance to find one of the Tin Men and have bragging rights that you found him!  The lucky Scout will be able to eat meals with the Tin Man and will also get a prize!

We also have the Flat Tin Man at camp this year!
The Scouts will be able to color a Tin Man and take pictures with him during his adventures at camp.  Don’t forget to email us your adventures at for a chance to be on our website page.
