Beaver Day 2024

Saturday, May 4th -- Camp Horne

Come One, Come All, We Need YOU!

It's that time of year again when spring cleaning and preparations for a busy summer camping season is upon us. Our annual Beaver Day at Camp Horne is an important day to get so many needed projects completed. We hope you can help!

Once again, the Beaver Day will be held in conjunction with the Order of the Arrow's Spring Fellowship, May 3-5 (visit the Aracoma Lodge website to register for the full weekend if you are a member). Saturday, from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. will be spent in service toward camp. Lunch will be provided by the Council IF you register in advance (no later than noon on Tuesday, April 30th) so we will have a good head count for ordering food. The Lodge will also present a special Beaver Day patch to all who participate.

Beaver Day is a one day event unless you are a member of the OA and register for the Spring Fellowship. Should a Unit wish to stay the evening, email Sleepy to make arrangements for the overnight, including food provisions beyond the Saturday lunch to be provided.
