Annual Ike Hike & Camporee

Each year, the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum and the Coronado Area Council host the annual Boy Scout "Ike Hike & Camporee" the first weekend in May. The event kicks off with an overnight stay at the Boy Scout Camp at Brown's Park south of Abilene. Saturday morning, scouts hike to the presidential library to set up camp and participate in a series of activities, highlighting the hobbies and interests of President Eisenhower, including the Western history of Abilene. The evening's events include a special speaker.

Boy Scout troops interested in attending the Ike Hike & Camporee should contact either:

Kaylee Jorgenson, Coronado Area Council, kayjorge@bsamail.org (785-827-4461) or

Tim Rives, Eisenhower Presidential Library & Museum, timothy.rives@nara.gov (785-263-6738)
