We’re one week away from Spring Pow-wow! Have you and/or your unit signed up?

Scouts and Scouters of all ages are invited to join us next weekend (March 6-8) at Camp Comer to learn a little bit about the Order of the Arrow (OA), participate in the OA’s centennial celebration, and honor the heritage of the American Indian! Guests and newcomers can join alongside seasoned experts to learn about our traditions of American Indian dancing, Order of the Arrow ceremonies, regalia construction, and more.

Over the last two years, more than 1,700 people have been a part of our Spring Pow-wow. If you’ve been to one of these before, you know how much fun it can be.

All packs, troops, and crews will have a special opportunity to camp with us on Friday and Saturday nights. We’ll show a movie on our jumbo screen and under the stars (with free popcorn!) both nights.
