With the recent announcement of the closure of Philmont Scout Ranch for the 2018 season, summer plans for a large number of Scouts and specifically Arrowmen have been impacted.
Due to this unprecedented and unfortunate event, the National Order of the Arrow Conference Committee would like to help ensure that Arrowmen can still participate in a great Scouting experience this summer.
In the third article in the Striking Gold: Series on Journey to Excellence, we will discover in greater depth the program objectives. Together, these requirements help measure how well lodge program is supporting its membership. Objectives being discussed in this article include lodge event participation, Brotherhood completion, service projects, and section and national event attendance.
Last summer, Operation Arrow played a vital role in the execution of the 2017 National Jamboree and our services are needed again. The reputation of the Arrowmen in ‘zesty blue’ has spread around the world and we are once again being called upon to provide cheerful service at the Summit Bechtel Reserve, this time to the 24th World Scout Jamboree in the summer of 2019.
