The Service Adventure
Service and adventure go together like peanut butter and jelly. Milk and cookies.. map and compass.
At least that's the idea that the Order of the Arrow is exploring with SummitCorps The New River Experience in July of 2011 at the New River Gorge National River in West Virginia.
For years, the Order of the Arrow has pioneered the concept of the service adventure with the OA High Adventure Programs. In 2008, the OA had the chance to open up the service adventure to more Arrowmen with ArrowCorps5. Now, in 2011, the Order of the Arrow is providing another opportunity to blend the bliss that comes from cheerful service and the personal growth that can only come from a high adventure. While the service to the national river is an important aspect of the project, the fun that comes from recreation, brotherhood, and being in the wilderness will make the experience that much richer.
Many Arrowmen have experienced service, and have experienced adventure. If you have not taken the time to experience one of the Order's service adventure opportunities, 2011 is your chance. Join us for the service adventure of a lifetime in West Virginia.
