Scouting for Food

January 27, 2018 (hanger drop off)
February 3, 2018 (food pick up)

Scouting for Food is a council-wide service project to care for people in our local communities who are hungry and those in need. In partnership with the Houston Food Bank and "Souper Bowl of Caring," the project begins Saturday, January 27, 2018, as Scouts distribute door hangers in their neighborhoods to announce the upcoming food drive. Scouts return the following Saturday, February 3, 2018, to pick up and deliver donations to their local food banks and pantries. A Scout promises "to help other people at all times." There is no better way to show our Scouting spirit than by participating in the annual Scouting for Food drive! Now is the time to show our community the Scouting values of being loyal, helpful, kind and cheerful. Scouts will help make a difference to fight hunger. Scouting for Food is the leading service program for Boy Scouts of America and is a part of the national BSA program - Good Turn for America. The unit representative should register the unit for Scouting for Food.

National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) Indiana University
7/30/2018 - 8/4/2018
All Day

National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC)

July 30 - August 4, 2018
Indiana University

The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is the premier event of the Order of the Arrow, and is Scouting's second-largest national event. Over 8,000 Arrowmen from across our nation gather for an inspirational and unforgettable experience full of fellowship, training, adventure, and fun!

During NOAC, Arrowmen will participate in a six-day conference which includes top notch training sessions, cool recreational opportunities, evening shows full of theatrics and special effects, and exciting programs.​

Due to expected high interest coupled with capacity constraints at Indiana University, the National Order of the Arrow Committee instituted a delegation size limit. Colonneh Lodge has been allotted 57 slots for youth members. A waitlist will be used for those registering after our initial slots are filled and Colonneh Lodge will request additional slots based on interest from our Arrowmen to attend NOAC 2018.

In addition to a limitation of contingent size, a 3:1 youth to adult ratio is being enforced.  Therefore, adults interested in attending NOAC 2018 with Colonneh Lodge will be required to fill out an application to attend as an adult contingent member. A selection process similar to 2015 will be used to determine those adults that will be able to attend NOAC 2018 with Colonneh Lodge.
