KON WAPOS SPRING FELLOWSHIP AT CAMP ROKILIO: April 21-23
The lodge will be holding their Spring Fellowship event at Camp Rokilio in conjunction with the Council Spring Camporee and Camp Scout Rokilio experience for Cub Scouts. OA members will provide support for the camporee and Cub Scout event and hold some fellowship activities during the weekend of April 21-23. OA members will help with parking and check-in as Scouts and Cub Scouts arrive on Friday night and Saturday. They will provide meal service for camporee staff, volunteers and the Cub Scout lunch along with general support, including set-up and clean-up. A campfire program and OA call-out ceremony will be conducted by the OA for the camporee on Saturday night. OA members will be camping in the Viking Ship area and plan to have additional program for members. A special OA fellowship and recognition event will be held on Saturday night after the campfire. An opportunity for Ordeal members to become Brotherhood members will also be offered. Join us for cheerful service, fun & fellowship at the Spring Fellowship.
