Spring is here!

The Spring Four Feather events started with the Crystal Lake Cleanup on Earth Day and Pinewood Derby at Martin Chevy. Both events were a huge success. Martin Chevy provided a great location for the Guides and Princesses to race their cars. The Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce hosted the Earth Day Cleanup.

The next Spring event is the Nation Pizza Party May 16th at Nick’s Pizza.

Don’t forget the Crystal Lake Memorial Day Parade!

The Spring campout is around the corner at our favorite camp location with a water park, pools, and golf carts!

Winter 2018 was a blast!

The Four Feathers 2018 winter program was a blast: Winter campout for Guides and Princesses, Daddy Daugther Dance, family tubing, and Battle House Laser tag. All events were a huge success. Around the corner is Spring and the Pinewood Derby event starts off the season with the petal to the metal!

Bell Ringing

The Four Feathers Nation rang the bell for the Salvation Army at the Santa House in Downtown Crystal Lake December 16, 2017. Several tribes arrived downtown and enjoyed getting everyone to donate as they arrived to visit Santa or headed to the Raue for a Holiday show. One donor brought an entire jar of coins which took a while to dump into the bucket! A patch was provided for those Guides and Princesses who attended. The Salvation Army will let the Nation know next year how much we raised during our shift. More photos of the event on our photo page.
