Troop 620

Sam Houston Area Council

Arrowman Bash - April 1-3

The below event will take the place of our April Troop Campout

April 1-3, 2016
Bovay Scout Ranch

All Scouts and Scouters are invited to join the Order of the Arrow (OA) for the 2016 Arrowman Bash at Bovay Scout Ranch on April 1-3 2016. For the first time ever, the OA is opening the entire weekend to all the members of the troop.  It is our goal to give the Houston scouting community the opportunity to learn more about the OA, advance in scouting skills and have fun! 

We have engaged our most experienced Arrowmen to create an exciting program for the OA members and visitors. The weekend is designed with something for everyone in your troop:

  • OA candidates can complete the Ordeal.
  • Current OA members have the opportunity to give back to camp by serving as an elangomat, guide for candidates completing the Ordeal, and attend a Brotherhood ceremony signifying full membership in the OA (eligibility requirements apply).
  • Young scouts can work on their path to First Class at the Skills Discovery Camp. 
  • Adults will  have the opportunity to gather and exchange ideas and learn more on how the OA can help improve your troop program.

Our weekend will start on Friday evening with check-in, send off of Ordeal candidates and elangomats, and opening show. Saturday will start with Skills Discovery Camp and the Scoutmaster Forum for adults.  Later in the day we will welcome back new the Ordeal members and have a fun evening with events like shotgun and rifle shooting, canoeing, and climbing just to mention a few. 

The event fee will include all activites and meals.  More information, including the finalized fee, and registration for individuals or troops will be available no later than March 1, 2016 at the link below.

We look forward to seeing you and your entire troop at Arrowman Bash 2016!
