Pine Wood Derby car kits will be available for sale from your tribe chiefs. Cars can also be purchased from our Indian Scout Colin McBean. Colin will have a box of cars on his porch beginning tomorrow morning. No need to contact him, just show up and take as many cars as you need and leave cash in the mail box near his front door. Cars are $5 each on the honor system.

Please note that our Fox Nation Pine Wood car kits are custom kits and are NOT the ones used by the Boy Scouts or other Nations. You will ONLY be allowed to use a car from one of our approved kits.

Race rules, car weights and dimensions can be found here. Cars that do not meet the weight and dimension limits will NOT be eligible for a trophy. Cars will be weighed and measured during race registration. Basic tools will be available on site for last minute modifications but please bring any special tools or extra weights you might need if you’re close on weight.

Indian Princess Feed My Starving Children

Feed My Starving Children Recap

A special thanks to the Indian Guides & Princesses who volunteered at Feed My Starving Children on Saturday February 21, 2015. This service event helped teach our children to help others who are less fortunate, while they packed close to 12,000 meals. This is enough food to feed 70 children for a year. The Fox Nation volunteers hand-packed meals specifically formulated for malnourished children in Africa. The meals packed will save lives and advance a desperate community – all progress starts with food.

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!”
