Order of the Arrow Trail Crew

March 13-17, 2015

The Order of the Arrow (OA) Trail Crew is an opportunity for Order of the Arrow members to provide cheerful service to El Rancho Cima during spring break. Arrowmen will spend three days improving trails used for weekend campouts, orienteering, Philmont shakedowns, and summer camp “death marches."

OA Trail Crew is not all about work. Arrowmen will spend time each day giving service to the camp’s trails; however, afternoons and evenings will be about brotherhood and fun (e.g., zip lines, looking at stars from Sentinel Peak, shooting sports, horseback rides). The day will end with reflection time and great food cooked in the quiet of the camp.  The cost is $45 for food, fun and cheerful service. Come help the OA do some service for the trails at El Rancho Cima that you have enjoyed, but more importantly, make it better for the Scouts who have not yet enjoyed the experience.
