Bob Williams Campout

Come join the fun at our own
Yellowknives Princesses and Yellowknives Guides


Bob Williams invites the Yellowknives to tent camp on his property each winter.  Son's are welcome.  Bob and his daughter are past Yellowknives members.  Bob has a pontoon boat, peacocks, bunnies, a horse and the biggest fire logs you've ever seen.  We'll gorge on Jambalaya and Chili to drive away all the wild animals.

Some history on Bob's neighbor
Bob's property in Port Orange, FL. adjacent to "Gamble Place" the historic museum within the Spruce Creek Preserve.  This 150-acre facility is home to cypress trees, alligators, pileated woodpeckers and osprey.

In 1898, James N. Gamble, of the Procter and Gamble Company and a longtime winter resident of Daytona Beach, bought this land on Spruce Creek for use as a rural retreat. In 1907, he built a small cracker cottage with an open front porch and a breezeway connecting a separate kitchen and dining room, which he named "Egwanulti," a Native American word meaning "by the water." At the same time, he rebuilt an existing packing house to process citrus from his grove.

In 1938, Gamble's son-in-law, Alfred K. Nippert, completed the "Snow White House," a Black Forest style cottage inspired by the Disney animated film classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The house is surrounded by a Witch's Hut, the Dwarfs' Mine Shaft, and an elaborate network of rock gardens. Collectively, these buildings and grounds form a historic landscape now known as Gamble Place. This property was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.


The temperature can get down into the upper 20's.  So check the weather and come prepared!

Hope to see you there!!
