    • Every Wednesday evening, we have an OA Movie night. All are welcome to attend, so bring your whole troop!
    • After the final campfire each week we have a call-out ceremony
    • If you haven't paid your dues for the year yet, you'll be able to do so at the Trading Post!
    • On June 26-27 (end of Week 1), we will hold the Summer Camp Ordeal. This is a great way for elected Scouts to have their Ordeal without needing to leave camp! There are several ways to register: visit the Trading Post, register online here, or download a paper form here!!

    Spring Fellowship Recap

    Spring Fellowship has long been a weekend in which our lodge can come together and spend time with good people, good food, and an awesome weekend competition.

    Things kicked off Friday night with a game of "Kawida Ball", a circle of people kicking a soccer ball while passing a frisbee to one another at the same time.

    Saturday was filled with Chapter competitions, or "Fellowship Wars". The teams consisted of We-Ha-Li and Tomahaken chapters against Tecumseh and Gikino Ballet chapters. Competitions included the Fireman Relay, Spam Toss, Tug-of-War, and Divide and Conquer (capture the flag).

    Saturday ended with two amazing ceremonies. One of them a new Fellowship Ceremony written especially for Kawida's Fellowships that had never been performed before. If you missed it, come see it again at Fall Fellowship!

    We had eight Arrowmen successfully hold their Vigils over the weekend. Congratulations to Sebastian Torres, Mitchell Redenbaugh, Sean Hillwig, Chance Bullock, JD Carruthers, Bob Hillwig, Russ Tucker, and Robert Jackowski, our newest Vigil Honor members!
