With the cancelation of Spring Conclave, there is still a need to help get Camp Mitigwa ready for its condensed summer camp.The lodge has decided to create two new opportunities in these unprecedented times. We have now made 2 work days for Arrowmen to help prepare for the summer camping season.
PLEASE NOTE: There will NOT be a work day on June 6 as previously scheduled.
The dates of these work days will be June 13 and June 20 from 8am – 4pm both days. Please read the following information carefully.
When you arrive at camp, there will be a short pre-health screening at the camp office – please go directly there. In short, if you feel sick at all, please stay home. For both days, we will be practicing social distancing as much as possible with our work groups. Face masks will be required for any work “clan” that is not able to social distance while working. Please bring your own – we will not be providing face masks for attendees. Please also bring your own water bottle, work gloves, rain gear, sturdy shoes or boots and a cheerful mindset. A camping chair is recommended to use at lunch both days and at the LECM on June 13.
Please also bring to camp, if you have them, cordless drills, weed eaters, hammers and other tools that might be needed for regular yard work. This will help us not need to sanitize equipment afterwards. Tent city requires T20 and T25 drill bits to set up. Please bring if you are able.
Please eat before you arrive at camp. Lunch will be free and will follow guidelines to protect everyone’s safety. Breakfast and dinner will not be provided.
At the end of the work day on June 13th is a LECM. Each chapter needs 2 youth and one adult minimum present for the the LECM. We will again use social distancing for the meeting. We anticipate the meeting to be a short one.
This is a rain or shine event so plan accordingly.
Vigil Honor nominations are due on June 13th at 4pm and can be filled out online or in person. You will find all information at the website at https://www.mitigwa-lodge.org/
To sign up for either one of the workdays, please use one or both of these links:
- Saturday, June 13 from 8am – 4pm : https://forms.gle/
- Saturday, June 20 from 8am – 4pm : https://forms.gle/
We will also have Spring Conclave segments and center pieces for sale at the event. Segments are $3 and center pieces are $5. Please do not come to camp just to make a paper Vigil Honor nomination or for the patches to help minimize people coming and going at camp.
We hope to have a good crew of members to help get camp ready. Please be patient as we find areas for your group to work on the day of the work day.
We will send a comprehensive email for the work day to all members the day before each work day. Thank you.
