March 15–21, 2020

Location: TBD

OA Trail Crew is an opportunity for Arrowmen to provide service to the trails at TBD in preparation for summer camp. OA Trail Crew is modeled after the National High Adventure Base programs at Philmont and Northern Tier.  It is also an opportunity to learn how to do trail and conservation projects.

OA Trail Crew is open to all Arrowmen 14 years of age and older. Participants spend the day on the trail and the evenings in brotherhood and fellowship with fellow Arrowmen. Trail work makes Arrowmen hungry so there are great meals prepared to enjoy and get reenergized.  Arrowmen also get to spend time exploring the camp. The work and fellowship is a lot of fun; especially if you bring a fellow Arrowmen from your troop or chapter to enjoy the experience.

OA Trail Crew is held during spring break each year; but since school districts have different weeks we do it the weekend between most school districts spring breaks.

  • All meals provided including Friday night 7 – 9 pm
  • Bring a tent, gloves, work clothes and a Cheerful Spirit – See you at OA Trail Crew
