pride, and offers a sense of belonging. Scouts
and leaders are expected to wear Scout uniforms
at all evening flag ceremonies and evening meals. Order of the Arrow members should wear
their sash as prescribed by the OA Camp Chief. Individual Troops may prescribe other
appropriate times for the Scout uniform or what is appropriate attire at camp.

devices may detract from the camp experience for themselves and others around them.

support for their Scouts. Certain tools for youth and adults will be available through their mobile
device while at camp (i.e. Scout schedules, menu, meeting times, etc.).

Spring Camporee 2016

Posted by shawn.ovenden on Apr 9 2016 - 11:41pm

It's not too late to sign up for Camporee (April 22-24) but it is too late to get the Early Bird Discount from Mid America Council.  So far we have 22 Scouts and 7 adults signed up but there is plenty of room at Little Sioux!
