Spring Fellowship Set For May 19-21, 2017

BSA - spring-registrationThe Skyuka Spring Fellowship is our first lodge event following the Dixie and is always lots of fun.  It is filled with lots of activities as well as opportunities to provide cheerful service to Camp Bob Hardin as we help get it ready for the hundreds of campers that will arrive in the coming weeks. If you know any scouts or scouters who were unable to attend the Summer Ordeal in 2016, make sure that they are aware of this fellowship as it will be their last opportunity to gain membership in the Order without having to be re-elected. Ordeal candidates can get information about what to bring, how to pack and such by clicking here.  Ordeal Candidates can register for the event by clicking here. Also, if you know of any Ordeal members who are eligible for Brotherhood, be sure to make them aware of the upcoming event as well.  Brotherhood candidates can register for Spring Fellowship by clicking here. We look forward to seeing you ALL at Skyuka Lodge’s Spring Fellowship on May 19th-21nd, 2017 at Camp Bob Hardin.

Cheerful Service – It’s What We Do

Below are some GREAT service opportunities available to Arrowmen.  Who knows, you might just have a little fun along the way!
  • Visit the Project 2013 website for more information about this opportunity for service during the 2013 National Boy Scout Jamboree.
  • The Order of the Arrow Trail Crew program is one of the best ways to experience Scouting's premier high adventure base, Philmont Scout Ranch. For two weeks, participants see and experience all that Philmont has to offer and much more.
  • The Order of the Arrow Wilderness Voyage: Canadian Odyssey program is an experience like no other. For two weeks, you will join together with Arrowmen from around the country and experience the wild beauty of the Quetico Provincial Park of Ontario, Canada.
  • The Order of the Arrow Wilderness Voyage program is an experience like no other.  For two weeks, you will join together with Arrowmen from around the country and experience all that the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota has to offer.
  • In the Order of the Arrow Ocean Adventure program -  in cooperation with the Florida Sea Base - you'll have an opportunity to provide cheerful service while experiencing the adventure and fun of one of the greatest ecosystems on our planet - the Florida Keys and the waters which surround them. This ten day program will provide an array of service opportunities that include work helping to develop the Florida Keys Heritage Trail, removing invasive species in and around the Sea Bases's Big Munson Island, and supporting both the Crane Point Nature Center and Marathon Wild Bird Center in preserving the Keys flora, fauna and wildlife. You will be camping at both Big Munson Island and Crane Point during the service portion of the program, after which you will move aboard a 40-50' sailing yacht for four days at sea. While afloat, you will experience the fun and excitement of life in the Keys from the unique perspective of a sailor as you sail, snorkel on pristine coral reefs, troll for sportfish, and swim in the warm waters of the Keys.
