Summer camp at Camp Raven Knob will be June 25-July 1, 2017. Please mark your calendar now and be ready to commit by mid-March. Dates for registration and payment will be determined on Nov. 28. We want to register early so older scouts can get the merit badge classes they need before they fill up.
other notes:
The Order of the Arrow is the honor and service society of Boy Scouting. The local chapter meetings are the first Thursday of every month at Glendale Heights UMC on Leon St. from 7-8pm. If your scout is a member of the OA, please come check it out and give your support. This is a great program to help scouts grow, give back to their community, and it looks good on applications and resumes - but only if you participate!
Our partner Cub Scout pack 17 is down to one registered scout - a Webelos I. It is important to start boys young in scouting and by having scouts in 17, we have a great "feeder" into troop 17. It is important for Boy Scouts to recruit Cub Scouts!
Peace, Love, and Jesus Christ,
