Now is the time to help our Camp prepare for the upcoming summer camping season
The third weekend of March, April and May. This could be an opportunity for lodge members or maybe chapters to put in some service hours. Lunch will be provided each Saturday to those who register.
If you have any questions about the service hours or any special skills you may have please reach out to Camp Cedars Ranger.
The Vigil Honor is a high mark of distinction and recognition reserved for those Arrowmen who, by reason of exceptional service, personal effort, and unselfish interest, have made distinguished contributions beyond the immediate responsibilities of their position of office to one or more of the following: their lodge, the Order of the Arrow, Scouting, or their Scout Camp. Under no circumstances should tenure in Scouting or the Order of the Arrow be considered as reason enough for a Vigil Honor recommendation. Any member of the Order of the Arrow registered in Scouting and in good standing in a regularly chartered lodge is eligible for recommendation to the national Order of the Arrow Committee for elevation to the Vigil Honor provided that, at the time of the recommendation, the individual has been a Brotherhood member for a minimum of two years.
This will be a unique opportunity to rediscover our love for the outdoors and camping, together. Join our national officers and the Momentum team as they showcase ideas and best practices, live from council camps in all four regions. We will see many of the classics you have come to know and love with our Momentum series, like live game shows and cooking competitions, but now with the 2021 national officers! We'll also discuss timely topics, convene the OA's top trainers and work together to build the future.
