All events are open to Scouts and their families from any district! Explore a new playground!

Illuminations is a complete holiday family event that lasts over 30 days from the Friday after Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve. These 37 nights of magical holiday family fun allow us to provide the families in our community with an amazing experience.

With over two million lights, Illuminations transforms every single garden area into a different themed holiday display or uniquely lit botanical setting. Thousands of luminaries light your way as you stroll through the paths and gardens, entertained by carolers and live music every night. Larger than life flowers and bugs are placed throughout the Wildflower Garden. Oversized fish and sea creatures turn the Shakespeare Garden into a magical underwater setting. Huge floating trees provide colorful reflections in the main pond. Santa is here every night before Christmas, visiting and taking pictures with all of the children. Enormous sweet treats are a huge hit in Candy Cane Lane and Candy Land! New for 2018 will be the addition of snow to accompany the fantastic light show synchronized to beautiful music that is installed in our main meadow. The Downing Children’s Garden brings smiles to young and old with lit monster trees, fairy lights in the musical maze, and fun holiday scenes lighting up every corner.

All Quivira Packs, Troops, and Crews are invited to participate in this event, as well as their family members and the public at large. Those who are not associated with the BSA will need to sign a waiver during check-in at the event.

This activity provides an opportunity for teams of scouts and their families to ride 100 man/miles on their own bicycles as a group, in celebration of 100 years of Quivira Council. For example, a team of 10 would need to ride 10 miles together to equal 100 man/miles. The route circuit will be over the paths and roads within the park and several laps will be necessary. Scouts who do not have a team may be linked up with other scouts at the event. Completing the whole 100 man/miles as a team is not required to participate but is required to receive the commemorative patch. Participants will be responsible for bringing their own meals. Water, some refreshments, and a trading post will be available during the event, as well as access to restrooms. First aid and a bike repair station (simple flats and adjustments) will be available. Participants will receive a small “goodie bag” at checkout, and a special patch for completing the 100 miles as a team.

Required items to bring:
• Your own bike in good, working condition
• Your own tire patches and/or extra inner tube
• At least one mileage tracking device for each team (GPS, phone, or cycle computer)
• Legal bicycle helmets are required for each participant riding

At Quivira Scout Ranch, we have the materials set aside to build 3 back country shelters .  Back country shelters are just that trail rest spots that will be placed in historical or scenic locations.  The plan is to join all points (11 in the plan) with an expansive trail system to enhance the overall back country experience at Quivira Scout Ranch.

Does your Pack/Unit/Troop/Crew have what it takes to build a shelter?

Do you want to leave your mark on Quivira Scout Ranch for future generations to come?
