Trail Crew Weekend

AN URGENT CALL FOR VITAL SERVICE!

Octoraro 22 will be hosting a trail crew day this weekend (3/12-13) at Camp Horseshoe! Any and all help during the weekend is appreciated! We will meet at 9 am at the HQ building and lunch will be provided.

We are repairing our bridge and fire circle and need Arrowmen to help move material, do trail work, and cut wood (certified chainsaw operators w/ chainsaws).

This impacts the entire lodge, as we will finally be reopening our nationally-renowned lodge circle for ceremonial use in April. 

Be part of the crew that “got it done”!
