Has your council reserved
your spot in history? Over 50% of the councils in the nation have
made a commitment to ArrowCorps5 to be a part
of the largest, most complex, most challenging conservation project
ever planned by the Order of the Arrow. Four sites have
space available, but a $100 deposit per person, per site,
must be submitted to the national office immediately. Do not be
left at home this summer, contact your lodge leadership to join
your council's contingent and plan to attend ArrowCorps5!
Your Summer of 2008
What do you see yourself doing during the summer of 2008?
Sitting at home, complaining you are bored, waiting for summer camp week to get
here? Wouldn't you rather be a par of something big? How big you ask? How about
5 US National forests, over 5 weeks with 5,000 Arrowmen? ArrowCorps5
is the largest, most complex, most challenging conservation project ever
conceived by the Order of the Arrow. Over 8 days you will have a chance to
participate in a variety of activities that may include trail building, brush
removal, cleanup activities, reconstruction, and one fun-filled action packed
day of adventure. These projects will have a lasting impact for generations
allowing tens of thousands to enjoy the efforts of ArrowCorps5.
Wait? What? You are going to be over the age of 21 by next
summer? No problem! For the first time ever adult Arrowmen will have the
opportunity to participate in a high adventure like atmosphere with the youth
Arrowmen. No it is not Trail Crew, nor Wilderness Voyage, but ArrowCorps5,
our largest conservation project.
