Within the Crater Lake Council in Central Oregon, the Lo La’Qam Geela Lodge hosted a council wide Camp-O-Rall. Camp-O-Rall was similar to a camporee/conclave event that welcomed all Boy Scouts, Venture Scouts, Explorers, Varsity Scouts and Webelos in search for Boy Scout troops. This year's Camp-O-Rall theme was ‘The Lost Frontier’ at New Frontier Ranch; this was to represent the ranch 150 years ago in 1868. Every unit represented a group of pioneers on the Applegate Trail heading towards the Willamette Valley, a historic town next to New Frontier Ranch.
REMINDER: 2019 OA Lodge Matching Service Grant Applications Due By October 31, 2018.
If your Order of the Arrow lodge is planning a council camp or service center project for 2019, you can apply now for a 2019 OA Matching Service Grant. All lodges applying for the grant must be a 2017 JTE Lodge (bronze level or higher) and should not have received a grant from the OA during the last two years (2017 or 2018).
The National Leadership Seminar (NLS) has been a long-time staple of honing the leadership skills of Arrowmen from across the nation since its first introduction in 1978. When first implemented, the program itself was created with the main focus that the lodge key three would attend at least once every three years. Since then, it has gone through several changes to broaden its scope and reach. In the past twenty years however, the program has remained vastly unchanged. This year is different.
