Lake Winnepesaukah, in partnership with the Cherokee Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, has announced its annual Scout Day will be held on Sept. 30. The event will take place during the park’s regular fall Sunday hours from noon-6 p.m. and offers free admission to uniformed Scouts. Free admission will also be extended to youth who join Scouting at the event.
Scout Day is open to all current Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers and their leaders. Scouts who wear their “Class A” uniform shirt will receive free admission to the park and an unlimited ride pass.
Scouts should stop by the BSA table on their way into the park to pick up their free admission ticket.
Youth, ages six to 18, who want to join Scouting can register at the BSA table as well. Accompanying parents or guardians can speak to Council representatives who will be available to answer questions and assist with registration. Youth who join Scouting at the event with a paid registration will also receive free admission to the park and an unlimited ride pass.
2018 marks the 12th year that Lake Winnie has partnered with the Cherokee Area Council in sponsoring Scout Day. Victoria Johnson, chief development officer for the Council, says the partnership has been very beneficial to area Scouting.
“We look forward to Scout Day at Lake Winnie every year. Our youth and adults love the event as it offers them a chance to have some fun while meeting fellow Scouts from all over the Council,” says Ms. Johnson. “We’re especially excited this year to provide the opportunity to sign up new Scouts at the event and offer them free park admission. We hope all those considering joining Scouting will come to the park on the 30th and take advantage of this wonderful event.”
Lake Winnepesaukah celebrates its 93rd year in 2018. Since 1925, the family owned and operated park has offered fun for all ages with over 40 rides, food concessions, games, paddleboats, miniature golf and shady picnic grove. The park is located at 1730 Lakeview Drive in Rossville. Parking is free.
