District Twilight Camp

June 23-25, 2015 from 1:30 - 8:00 pm
A.V. "Bull" Sallas Park ( 21681 McCleskey Rd, New Caney, TX 77357)

Twilight Camp is a council camp hosted by districts for Scouts entering 1st – 5th grade. Scouts earn rank advancements, learn new skills, play sports and games, make crafts, shoot BB guns and archery, but most of all have fun. Scouts can attend any district’s camp that best suits their schedule. Participants receive a t-shirt and patch.

At camp, Cub Scouts will salute those heroes who help keep us safe and secure each and every day. Can only adults be heroes? Heroes are often ordinary kids who did something out of the ordinary! Sometimes a hero is obvious, the policeman who risks his life to protect us from violence or the fireman who pulls people out of burning buildings. Some people around us seem like regular people, but they are heroes because they used to be soldiers in the military and served our country to keep us free. Heroes are all around us. You never know when or where emergencies will arise. Scouting teaches us how to handle these situations. We don’t expect to get hurt, and don’t expect to need first aid, but we are prepared just in case. Do Your Best! One person can make a difference. One person who helps can change someone’s world. Maybe one day the hero will be you or your Cub Scout.

ArrowTour is one of three programs that comprise a year-long celebration of the Order of the Arrow’s centennial anniversary. In the summer of 2015, four delegations of youth Arrowmen will travel to council camps and Scouting events to bring our national centennial experience to Scouts, Arrowmen, and communities throughout the country.

ArrowTour will provide opportunities to reflect, connect, and discover the Order's Centuries of Service, both past and future. Youth leaders from around the country are already hard at work building the ArrowTour program. The program has been designed for all Scouts, OA members, Scouting alumni, family, friends and non-members alike. Whether a first-year camper or a seasoned volunteer, the ArrowTour program will offer something for everyone. Some of the planned ArrowTour programs include:

  • Exploration: History displays, interactive timelines, and program videos
  • OA Evening Show: A camp-wide program that will recognize the Order’s rich 100 year history, and reveal where the steps to our second century of service begin. We will end the show with a camp-wide social.
  • Activities: Silk screening (bring a shirt), branding (bring hat or belt), 100th-anniversary trading post, and recreational games.
  • Service: ArrowTour Team service project, alumni outreach to benefit local councils.
