The Garrison Parade for Culver Summer Schools and Camps is being moved to Saturdays at 7 p.m. EDT for the 2014 summer. The parades are held on the Henderson Parade Field south of the Vaughn Equestrian Center.
The traditional Woodcraft Council Fire is also on Saturday and will now begin at 9:30 p.m.
June 28 will be the first Saturday for the new Garrison Parade/Council Fire times. The schedule will continue on July 5, July 12 (the weekend of the Moonlight Serenades), and July 19 (Summer Homecoming Weekend).
The last regularly scheduled Garrison Parade of the six-week camp session will be July 26. The Final Garrison Parade will be Thursday, July 31, as part of the camp graduation ceremonies.
Culver’s summer Garrison Parades showcase 1,400 campers from 39 states and 41 countries. For each parade the campers from Woodcraft (ages 9-13) and those of Upper Camp (13-17) join forces on the parade field with Lake Maxinkuckee serving as a backdrop.
The parade is a tangible and meaningful example of the lessons of leadership, self-confidence, and personal responsibility that Culver Summer Schools & Camps has been instilling in youths since 1902.
