Jamboree Patch Set Pre-Order
Below is a link to the Jamboree Patch Set Pre-Order if you are interested in a set you need to fill out the form and indicate how many sets you want. Each set includes 5 colors that will coordinate with the Jamboree Council Strip.
Brotherhood This summer, all arrowmen who have been members for at least 10 months and have completed the requirements stated in the OA handbook, can participate in their Brotherhood Ceremony. The Brotherhood Ceremony will be held on Wednesday night of both weeks of camp (June 12 and 19). Those participating in the ceremony will meet on the office porch at 8:00 unless otherwise instructed. Anyone who is already a Brotherhood member is welcome to come out and support their brothers.
OA Day/Ice Cream SocialFriday (June 14 and 21) will be OA Day. We are asking that all arrowmen wear their sashes on this day. You do must be in field uniform; just simply put your sash on as you walk around camp. This is to raise interest in non-OA members, recognize those who have been so highly honored, and for us to get to know each other better. That afternoon, the Camp Edgewood Water Carnival will take place, at which we will be serving ice cream. We need some arrowmen to step up in cheerful service and help serve ice cream for a time. The OA Trading Post will also be set up next to the ice cream if anyone wants to buy a lodge T-shirt, patch etc. You will also be able to pay your dues at this time if you have not already done so. No one who owes money will be allowed to purchase anything from our trading post.
CALL-OUTAs always, at the end of the closing campfire on Friday, we will conduct a call-out ceremony. Those who wish to be ceremonialists can contact Brandon Brewer. If you are in need of a Unit Election we are asking that you contact Hayden LeBlanc before Summer Camp. If you absolutely must do so, you can schedule an election at camp, in which case talk to John Williams. If you are coming from out of council, please collect and fill out the appropriate forms from your home lodge. If you have any questions about the Induction Process, please talk to Hayden LeBlanc.
Out-of-Council Call-Out Request Form
If a troop is deciding to go to Summer Camp other than Camp Edgewood and you have scouts that need to be called out, you need to have the Call-Out Request Form. This form needs to be filled out and signed by the lodge.
Ordeal August 9 - 11
The next Quelqueshoe Lodge Ordeal is scheduled for August 9 - 11. This is one of two occasions during the year for newly elected candidates to complete their induction into the Order of the Arrow. It is also a great opportunity for Ordeal members to seal their membership by completing their Brotherhood. There are always numerous projects and activities to give even the most active Arrowman something to do. In addition to the induction and service aspects of the Ordeal, both members and new members will enjoy great food, fun and fellowship. Registration starts at 6:00pm.
