    NOAC 2015 Update

    News Flash! Kawida has 30 total spots for NOAC 2015, and we've already filled 16 of them (as of last count). We're currently looking for youth to fill the rest of these spots. While we will take an adult registration, we need to make sure that we have more youth than adults. If you're interested in attending NOAC, check out for more information and to register!


    Fall Fellowship

    The first ever themed Fall Fellowship was held last weekend. Friday evening kicked off with a tailgate-style cracker barrel, complete with trucks, canopies, and good food. The shotgun and rifle ranges, along with the zipline, opened Saturday morning, and chapter members competed to get the most signatures from each area. Lodge elections were held after lunch. Your 2015 Lodge officers are: Nathan Vick, Lodge Chief; Sebastian Torres, Vice Chief of Service; Colin Stapleton, Vice Chief of Brotherhood; and Ben Gilbert, Treasurer. No secretary was elected, so if you are interested in the position, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Following elections were Quest games, including the spam toss, Ultimate Frisbee games, football, and a camp-wide game of Capture the Flag. After dinner, seven Arrowmen sealed their membership in the Order by converting to Brotherhood. After the Brotherhood ceremony was a tailgate party at Stamler, with the UK game on the big screen with cracker barrel to go with it. Sunday morning following cleanup and a Scout's Own service, the climbing tower was open for rappelling. Congratulations to the newly elected lodge officers and those who went through Brotherhood conversion!!

    Fall Ordeal Recap

    Fall Ordeal was a success! We had 32 candidates complete their Ordeal, and five members convert to Brotherhood. The candidates completed many service projects for Camp McKee, including taking down and folding all the tents in camp and taking them to the maintenance area for storage, finishing clearing construction debris from the Adirondack Shelters, assembling the latest edition of the Thunderbird, and setting up bunk beds in Keeneland.

    Congratulations to those who completed the Ordeal, and to our new Brotherhood members!!

    We hope to see all our new members at Fall Fellowship!
