I’m very happy to announce the Order of the Arrow “Get Kids to Camp” program. Through this program, the OA will provide financial assistance to units that want to send Scouts to camp but lack sufficient qualified trained leaders that are available to attend a week of summer camp. Through this program, the OA will provide funds for up to 4 Scout leaders to attend camp without having to pay any camping fees. Since Camps Conestoga and Buck Run already provides two free leader positions for each unit attending camp, this will mostly benefit larger troops or provisional units with special circumstances.
If your unit is currently having problems recruiting enough trained leaders to provide the required level of supervision at Camp this summer, please get in touch with your District Camping Chairperson immediately.
This program is available to both Cub Scout Packs and Boy Scout Troops.
All applications are due by April 15.
