A Tribute to Little Sioux Ranch
For those of you that may not be aware on June 11, 2008 a group of Boy Scout Youth Leaders from various Troops in the Mid America Council were attending a leadership camp called Pahuk Pride Leadership Camp where a tornado ripped through the camp. The tornado claimed the lives of 4 young men who were attending the camp and injured 48 other scouts. The damaged that occurred affected the following buildings:
  • Administration Building
  • All four latrines in the North Valley
  • East Cabin
  • North Cabin
  • MidAmerican Energy Pavilion
  • One Latrine in the Main Valley
  • Poot's Stage
  • Ranger Home
  • Roads
  • Trails
Obiviously this was devestating not only to the families who lost loved ones but to everyone at the camp and the whole scouting community. The local Scouting and World Scouting Communities have offered support that could not be found in any other organization in the world. Help us to remember those lost help with the healing process by sharing your prayers and words of comfort to those involved in this tragedy. Please feel free to visit the following site:

If anyone has any concerns or corrections to this post please send me those comments by replying to the post. Please remember that I have no direct connections to this event but wanted to post the information so it can be shared with more of the scouting community.

Yours in Scouting Service
