Upcoming events:

 Pioneer Parent Meeting: 9/5 6:00PM Grounds for Hope (located in Trinity Church). Lisle, IL

  • Our first official meeting will be a "parents-only" meeting.  If you do need to bring your son or daughter, there is a playplace that they can hang out and have some fun while we have our meeting.  We will use this time to introduce ourselves to one another and to give a brief introduction to the program, including campouts, future meetings and event registration. Bring your questions.


Fall Campout 9/20-22  Camp Tecumseh, IN

  • Campouts are a cornerstone of the Indian Guide program.  Plan to attend this campout and find out why.  You and your child will get to experience many fun events..... the "black hole" slide, horseback riding, archery, rock climbing, a campfire with skits (and smores) and even a glow in the dark bug hunt.    ALL campouts are in cabins.
