The KidWind Challenge is the ultimate wind energy-learning experience for 4th—12th grade students. The goal is to have fun building a device that converts moving wind into electricity. If along the way, students learn some physics, engineering, environmental science, and policy — that is great! When students participate, they will—
— Design, build, and test a functional, creative wind turbine
— Compete with their peers in a supportive environment
— Discover the promise and limitations of wind energy technology

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

Started in 1998 as the flagship event for the Society of Women Engineers Wichita Professional Section, the FREE Engineering Expo features hands-on activities for kids in grades K-8 that expose them to how STEM relates to the world around us. “What is STEM?” you may ask. It stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. By exposing children to STEM and giving them opportunities to explore STEM-related concepts, they are continually challenged to understand why things are the way they are. We hope to help them question things while giving them the ability to find the answers.

Black Jack Trail is an experience where the history of Quivira Scout Ranch is delved into and some backpacking is done into the heart of The Ranch leaving all big, fancy equipment behind. This is as opportunity for your Troop to go out with a minimum of equipment, have maximum fun, and use The Ranch to its fullest. There are endless program opportunities on our own Council Camp, and we urge every Troop to take advantage of them.

Would you like to grow your Troop? Arrow of Light Scouts can be a bit intimidated by Scouts BSA Troops. They’re older, bigger, and they may not know them. This Camporee is designed to get the Arrow of Light Scouts actively participating with the Troop, early, in hopes that they will begin to build relationships with Troop youth and leaders. This will give them a taste of what the Scouts BSA Troops do as well as give them a great opportunity for an entire weekend to begin to build friendships with the older youth.

A Camporee is a District event open to Scouts from both in and out of Quivira Council in which Scouts participate in outdoor skills-based activities. Arrow of Light Scouts will participate with the Troop of their choice!!! Please share this information with other adults and leaders in your unit and AOL Den.

Events will utilize many Scouts BSA outdoor skills (as required for Tenderfoot, Second and First Class Rank Advancements), plus other fun activities. Units will provide their own food & cook by patrol method.

This workshop will be presented on two separate Saturday mornings and is hosted and sponsored by Meritrust Credit Union. These classes will present the Scout BSA with information and guidance pertaining to the Personal Management merit badge, an Eagle required merit badge. The instructor for this workshop is a financial education specialist from Meritrust. Personal management is about the Scout learning the life skills to take control of their life by setting and attaining goals, financial and otherwise. Information presented and classroom activities performed will prepare the Scout to meet with a Personal Management merit badge counselor and complete several of the merit badge requirements.
*Note: Upon completion of these courses, Scouts WILL NOT have fully completed the requirements to earn the badge. However, this workshop will present information concerning requirement numbers 2, 4, 5, 6, and 7 preparing them for a productive merit badge counselor session to fulfill those requirements.

ALL racers in the divisions above will race together; the computer will keep track of subcategories and provide separate standings, if enough racers fit each subcategory. We will have Outlaw (cars NOT entered in the official races; racers may be cubs or family/friends) and “grudge match” races following the Grand Champion races and awards ceremonies, but time may be limited based on how everything runs that day. The format used will depend on the time available. Please be prepared to be flexible. You are also welcome to bring Outlaw and additional official cars not entered in the race for the display table. Share your creations and join the fun!
