Thanks for coming to Spring Pow-wow!

by Chris Brightwell on March 14, 2016

With about 150 Arrowmen on staff and more than 400 participants of all ages, we had nearly 600 people in camp for the 2016 edition of our annual Spring Pow-wow! Everyone had a great weekend, despite that we had to shuffle a bunch of stuff around due to lingering threats of rainy weather.

The rain finally came at about 9 PM on Saturday, but not until we spent the day enjoying all kinds of hiking, advancement, and Native American activities. The afternoon peaked with our annual dance pow-wow before we reset the dining hall to make room for the closing show and bridging ceremony.

At the closing show, we saw more than a dozen Webelos bridge into Boy Scouts with a little bit of help from our Order of the Arrow ceremonial figures. We also saw a new video from Coosa Shows, entitled “The Scout Oath.” Afterwards, everyone lined up for all the ice cream they could eat and we settled into our seats to watch a movie on our big screen.

We’ve had a lot of requests for that closing video, so here it is:

Hosting this event every year is a blast for us, and we always learn new ways to improve on the next year’s event. See you in 2017!
