OA Trail Crew

March 10-14, 2017
El Rancho Cima

OA Trail Crew patch

OA Trail Crew is an opportunity for Arrowmen to provide cheerful service at 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., ziplining, climbing, 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. 

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. If you need a ride let us know, and we will see if a car pool can be arranged.

OA Trail Crew is open to all Arrowmn 14 years of age and older. The event is held during the week that most schools have spring break. 


The registration fee is $45 and includes meals and a special patch. The weekend fee is $30. The OA Trail Crew begins on Friday night. Check-in after 7:00 pm. The event ends on Tuesday morning at 11:00 am. If this is not your spring break week, join us for the weekend.
