Arrow of Light Weekend 2020- September 18-20th
The Arrow of Light Weekend is a fun-filled event for Arrow of Light Cub Scouts to work on skills, team building, and some adventure requirements. Most importantly it is an event that gives Arrow of Light Scouts a small taste of a Northern Nexus Summer Camp experience! One of the three core pillars of the Order of the Arrow is Service. It is our duty as a lodge to serve our council and it’s members and this is one of the largest ways we do this each year. Although at the time, many Cub Scouts do not realize, this is usually their first interaction with the Order of the Arrow. This is your chance to have an impact on the youth of Scouting. To provide the same opportunity that was likely provided to you, back when you were a Cub Scout.
