OA: The Centurion Award

As we move into the Centennial year of the Order of the Arrow we’re looking to celebrate our heritage. One way the OA is planning to do this is through the Centurion Award.

This recognition is looking for current or former Arrowmen who are “exemplars of the high ideas and purpose of the Order of the Arrow.” It is similar to the BSA’s “Hall of Leadership” in 2010 for the BSA’s Centennial Celebration. It can also be awarded posthumously.

Nominations are limited to 1 in 100 currently registered Lodge members, so selection for this award is quite an honor.

Keep an eye out through the Kanwa tho Lodge for more information on the nomination process!

Lake Geneva Canopy Tours Offer Programs for Scouts

Lake Geneva Canopy Tours offers quality programmatic experiences centered on the Boy Scout Leadership Experience. Our Eco-Adventures offer a multitude of opportunities to build character & develop personal fitness in keeping with the goals of the Boy Scout organization.

Scouts can complete some of the requirements for specific awards through hiking & mountain biking on our almost 9 miles of Arbor Trails.

Team Building programs provide a combination of educational & recreational initiatives which challenge participants to work together toward a common goal. The 2 hour High Ropes Excursion offers 16 different obstacles of various difficulties to allow participants to push their limits, conquer fears & build self-confidence.

As a Certified Travel Green Wisconsin destination, our Eco Adventures educate on environmental protection & sustainability. Guides discuss specific ways in which we work hard to protect all aspects of the land, trees, water & wildlife throughout the Canopy Tour. The 2.5 hour Canopy Tour is our most thrilling Eco Adventure as participants soar through the trees on 8 different zip lines, 5 sky bridges, 3 spiral stairways and a one-of-a-kind “floating” double helix stairway which wraps around a breathtaking ash tree. The 1,200 foot Dual Racing Zip Line is the grand finale, weather permitting.

Additional amenities include a picnic area, grill, bag game, horseshoes and lunch options, upon request.

It’s back for another run!

The Turkey Trail Run is celebrating its second anniversary at Camp Indian Mound in Oconomowoc Saturday November 1st, 2014. It’s a 5K run, or 1 mile walk, and helps us promote the good work that Scouting does in the community. It’s also a great way to spend a beautiful day in the leaves and on the trail this fall!

If your Pack, Troop or Crew displays Scouting skills like flag retirement, cooking or bottle rockets during the event you could camp for free at Indian Mound Scout Reservation!

Or choose to Run/Walk – entry fees of $20 per runner, or $8 per walker (just $5 for 17 and under!) and you can get a free tee shirt if you register by October 18th.
