2014 Fall Camp Recap

We had an amazing weekend, with perfect camping weather, which made for one of the best camp outs I can remember. Our Indian Guides and Indian Princesses participated in archery, bb guns, canoeing, kayaking, and our ever popular critter race.

See below for some of the pictures from last weekend’s campout at Camp Anokijig. And if any dads have more pictures they’d be willing to share, send them to your chief and ask him to get them on the website.

Welcome!  Kick off your year with Fox Nation Indian Guides & Princesses by attending the first of three nation-wide weekend campouts! The Fall Campout will be held September 5 – 7, 2014 at nation-favorite Camp Anokijig, about a 2-hour drive north in beautiful Plymouth, Wisconsin!

This weekend-long event is a great opportunity to meet or reconnect with your tribe while spending special father-son/daughter time together! Drive up on Friday night or Saturday morning & spend a good ‘ole fashioned weekend in the great outdoors!  Camp activities galore await you such as swimming, archery competitions, BB gun marksmanship contest, Native American arts & crafts, fishing, canoeing, face painting, horseback rides, and the annual Fox Nation torch parade and ceremonial campfire on Saturday night!  Spend all day at one activity or try them all – it’s up to you!  Drive up Friday night & get your tent pitched (or grab a cabin!) and cook out your hot dogs, burgers, s’mores (whatever you bring on up!) for dinner while enjoying casual community time with your tribe!  Full hot & tasty meals are included Saturday (breakfast, lunch & dinner) and Sunday breakfast (departure is noon!).  Full agenda of events is coming soon, so check back daily.

And, don’t forget to bring your critter catcher to grab your critter for our famous Critter Race and a decorated old sock for the annual “Old Man Grouch” burial at the flagpole!  These are the types of annual traditions your children will look forward to at each campout!

“My kids talk about these campouts year-round and how much they look forward to attending,” said 4-year member, Jeff Savage.  “With school, activities, sports and 24/7 access to technology, events such as these are great opportunities to unplug and spend quality one-on-one time with my kids!  After each one, we take away excellent memories and start looking forward to the next one!”

Fourth of July Indian Guides

Fun, Family and Community at Fourth of July Parade

Thanks to everyone who supported Fox Nation at the Lake Bluff Fourth of July parade! Whether it was riding on the float, walking next to it, or cheering us on along the parade route, Fox Nation had an impressive showing. In fact, our renovated float, complete with smoke rising from the tepee, is rumored to have won best float. Way to go!  A lot of hard work went into the renovations, but seeing the fun time everyone had celebrating our community and our country makes it worth it. Fox Nation has participated in the Lake Bluff parade for as long as we can remember. We are proud to carry on that tradition, making new memories for our families.

Lake Bluff 4th of July Parade

Fox Nation, it is that time of year again.  Our annual participation in the Lake Bluff, IL 4th of July parade is only a couple of weeks away.  Join us at 9am on East Center Avenue LB, where we will have our newly refurbished Fox Nation Float, face painting, flyers to hand out to prospective dads, and candy for the kids to give out along our route.  Our guides and princesses are welcome to ride on the float as well. The parade steps off at 10am sharp.  

Wear your Fox Nation tee shirts and vests and show off our Nation pride and spirit, and chiefs bring your headdresses.  This is a very important recruiting event for us as we hand out flyers to a captive audience, so please join us if you can. 

Please remember to pack sun screen and plenty of water.  We have room for backpacks on the back of the float.  See the attached map for directions to the parade staging areas along both sides of East Center Ave.  We signed up very early this year and are expecting a desirable spot near the front of the parade.  

Hope to see everyone out there! If you have any questions reach out to your Chief.
