Here is a unique opportunity for Scouts who want to help Nepal rebuild after a series of horrific earthquakes. You have a chance to travel to Nepal and take part in rebuilding devastated areas in the country along with Nepalese and American Scouts. Please see the flyer below for more details, and remember to #DareToDo!
The Chester Council County Order of the Arrow Lodge, Octoraro 22, is hosting a Council-wide Cub Scout recruiting effort at Camp Ware. This year’s event promises to be more action packed then last years, including an overnight at the Camp. If you decide to come down for the day – registration will open at 9:00 AM Saturday but it is “come when you can, leave when you must”. We encourage ALL Cub Scouts (Tigers to Arrow of Lights) to bring a friend with them to share the fun of Cub Scouting. The cost of the program will be $10/youth and an additional $5/additional family member. All Cub Scouts that bring a friend will be refunded the cost of the program. The program activities include a night hike, a campfire, BB Shooting, Slingshot paintball, Bottle Rockets launching and other fun activities. Advancement opportunities will be made available. We will also have activities showing Webelos the cool things the Boys Scouts do! We encourage Packs and Dens to come as units but the event is open to everyone.
The September Fellowship weekend allows new Ordeal and Brotherhood members to be inducted while providing service to the camp combined with special fellowship and games. The Lodge elections also take place this weekend.
At the 2015 NOAC, all Arrowmen were challenged – do 100 acts of unselfish service in the next 100 days.
It’s simple. Each day do an act of service, no matter how small, for the other people around you. Post about it on social media using the hashtag #DareToDo — and we’ll make America better, each day, together.
Octoraro Lodge 22 has over 800 active arrowmen who donate hundreds of service hours annually to help maintain Horseshoe Scout Reservation and encourage camping in Chester County Council. We hope that this site will answer your questions about our lodge. If you have any further questions, feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Octoraro 22 is celebrating the centennial anniversary of the OA with a centennial event – a Day of Service!
Volunteers to assemble at 8:30am on October 10th for coffee and donuts and for planting instructions. After that work will commence. Projects should be completed by noon, but if a few want to stay longer at each site to check the work, then they may want to bring a lunch. Both BVA and CRC will have water for the volunteers.
