Kon Wapos Lodge Spring Fellowship
The Kon Wapos Spring Fellowship 2021 will be a special opportunity for the OA to support the council camporee and the Cub Scout Rokilio Experience. OA members will provide service in a number of areas and we will have OA fun and fellowship included in the weekend. Some of the areas we will suport during the weekend, include helping with parking and check-in on Friday night and Saturday morning, meal service for the Cub Scouts and the camporee program volunteers and staff. The OA will plan and conduct a campfire for the camporee Scouts on Saturday night. An OA call-out for newly elected OA members will be held at the campfire. We will also be calling out our 2021 Kon Wapos Lodge Vigil Class on Saturday night.
A special evening of fun & fellowship for OA members will be held on Saturday night after the campfire. We'll have games, food, music and time to get to know OA members from all over Kon Wapos Lodge. Your registration fee includes snacks and all meals during the weekend. Friday night snack, Saturday breakfast, lunch, dinner and evening Fellowship snacks, Sunday breakfast and lunch.
OA members are needed by 4pm on Friday to help with parking and check-in. Earlier arrivals can help with set-up tasks on Friday afternoon before the Scouts arrive for the camporee.

We will follow covid protocols which include distancing, wearing a mask and frequent hand washing. We will issue red facemasks to OA members. This will identify you as an OA member and service team member for the weekend. The OA will be camping in the vicinity of the Viking Ship. Members will sleep 1 per tent. Youth protection guidelines prohibit parents and son/daughter from tenting together.
Leaving camp during the weekend is prohibited. If any youth member needs to leave camp for any reason, they must sign out and be picked up by a parent or guardian or have a signed permission slip from their parents or guardian stating why they are leaving and who has permission to pick them up. Thank you for your help with this safety issue.
