SHAC Corps

S.H.A.C. (Scouts Helping at Camp) Corps is an opportunity for troops and crews to give back to camp in the form of a day of service. The Order of the Arrow is leading this opportunity, but this service project is open to all troops and crews. Camp is providing a special patch that will only be available to those who provide service. Service projects could include camp maintenance, creating trails, and developing program areas. Letters will be given to youth who need school service hours.


The deadline for registration is the Monday prior to the event; there is no cost to attend. Registration is completed by the unit leader or individual Arrowmen (OA members) if their unit isn't attending.
