Memorial Day Workers Weekend

Once again, it’s time to schedule a trip to the Northwoods, to Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation during the Memorial Day weekend to help prepare our camp for the 2018 season of Scouting.

This weekend of cheerful service is not just for members of the Order of the Arrow, but for any Scout, Scouter, or friend of Scouting who would like to come.  We encourage Units to sign up for specific projects. Email for details.

The weekend is not all work, but also FUN.  You will have time to enjoy opportunities like fishing, hiking, canoeing, crafting, or sitting around a campfire with some old (and maybe new) friends.  Enjoy the great Northwoods. Bring your own tent or reserve a cabin along the shore of Lake Killian.

Also, if you are an Ordeal Member, and have been so since July 2017, this is a terrific opportunity to seal your membership in the order by accepting the Brotherhood Honor.   Eligible Ordeal members are welcome to the Brotherhood!  If you completed your Ordeal in 2016 or 2017 your Brotherhood fees are paid for this year, the cost would be just the event fees for the food.
