Are you excited about going to NOAC 2020, but unsure how your lodge can raise enough money? Hopefully your lodge leadership is already thinking about fundraising and may have even started already. The more money you raise, the more Arrowmen can attend this outstanding event August 3-8, 2020 at Michigan State University!!
Each one of us has that special council camp we call home. It could be where we had our first campout, where we earned our first merit badge or maybe even where we went through our Ordeal and became part of something greater. Regardless the meaning or the reason, each of us has wished to leave our mark on the camp that has given us so much. That is exactly what T’Kope Kwiskwis Lodge did at three of their council camps.
In late November last year California was hit by its most destructive wildfire in history. For two weeks the Camp Fire spread over 150,000 acres affecting countless lives. After the devastating fire Arrowmen from all across the State of California took charge and stepped up in order to aid their communities and help their fellow Scouts and Scouters.
In the summer of 1992, three young Arrowmen had an idea that would soon change the Order of the Arrow as a whole, envisioning a service program at Philmont Scout Ranch for OA members. At its inception in 1995, the program was intended to be run for only one summer and only one project. But due to its success and popularity, that single summer of service has evolved into one of the Order of the Arrow’s most meaningful experiences: five programs, at all four national high adventure bases, known as OA High Adventure.
