May 21 – June 4, 2017

New Order of the Arrow Fall Conclave Schedule Back to October – A reminder that our fall conclave will be at Tonkawa Lodge at Camp Stearns on October 6-8. Talk about a great place for us to hold our conclave!! The Tonkawa lodge is named in honor of Camp Tonkawa, which was located on the shores of Lake Minnetonka.

NOAC 2018 – The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is the premier event of the Order of the Arrow, and is Scouting’s second-largest national event. In 2018, several thousand Arrowmen from across our nation are expected to gather at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. To learn more about NOAC. Read More

Summer Meetings – Ceremony Teams and Conclave Staff – This summer, our youth leaders will continue to meet on a TBD basis to work with youth Arrowmen on ceremony teams and staffing for the fall Induction Conclave. Information on these meetings and other activities will be provided by both the Lodgemaster and district email services.

Summer Camps – This summer, as your units attend the various council camps, look for OA callouts and other OA presence at those locations. Our purpose of service and camping will hopefully be very visible during your travels

May Chapter Meeting – No Official Meeting – In May we will not be officially meeting due to district dinner. Stay tuned, however, for a special meeting the youth leadership will create to focus on Conclave sometime during the month.

Upcoming Events:

Aug 27-28 –  Vigil Reunion and Conclave 2017 – All Vigil members are invited to join their fellow Vigil brothers at the Totanhan Nakaha Vigil Conclave and 2nd Annual Vigil Re-Union, August 26  and 27, 2017 at Stearns Scout Camp.
