SummitCorps - The New River Experience
The National Order of the Arrow Committee is pleased to announce SummitCorps
- The New River Experience - a hybrid of ArrowCorps5 and our OA High
Adventure programs. During July 2011, SummitCorps - The New River Experience
will provide service to the New River Gorge National River in West Virginia.
Upgrading the trail bed of the Garden Grand Hike and Bike Trail, along with
invasive species removal, will be the focus of the project. The Garden Grand
Hike and Bike Trail connects the New River Gorge National River to the Boy
Scout's new high adventure base and home of the Jamboree - The Summit: The
Bechtel Family National Reserve.
Lodge contingents have a choice of four sessions to attend - 1) July 3-9,
2) July 10-16, 3) July 17-23, and 4) July 24-30. Similar to ArrowCorps5
and our High Adventure programs, the week will consist of service and recreation
The projected cost for each participant is $250.
