National Order of the Arrow Conference 2015

All members of the Order of the Arrow are invited to attend the 100 year anniversary celebration and national OA conference in Michigan next year.  Our Lodge will be sending a contingent of Scouts to Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI from August 3-8, 2015.  If you are interested, check out this video or go to the NOAC Website for more information.  Our Philmont crews in 2015 will have just returned home just a few days before NOAC begins – so you can still go!  Cost is estimated to be $600 for the week, including transportation.  If you are interested, see Mr. Klemens as soon as possible.  The Lodge is taking deposits for the event now.  Oh, and did I mention that participants will receive a one-time, special issue, “White on Red” sash that commemorates the one hundred years of the Order.   Check out the photo, below.  Click Read more.


…and they’re off!

We have four Scouts participating in advanced youth training this week at Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan.  Christian M, David H, Andrew G and Owen S will spend one week at National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT).  This course, run by our Council, teaches a variety of skills with special emphasis on leadership and troop operations.  We’ll incorporate their new ideas into our program to make sure we do things as the Boy Scouts of America teaches.  Be sure to thank them for giving up a week of their summer to make sure our troop continues to improve.
