X-treme Adventure Day

at Ockanickon Scout Reservation

 

            On 02 NOV, Ajapeu Arrowmen gathered at Camp Ockanickon to show non-scouts the fun that the Scouting program has to offer.  Open to all boys who are not involved in Scouting and to any boys who are new to the Scouting program, X-treme Adventure Day was part of the council-wide membership recruitment effort. 

            Attendees of the event were taken on a quick tour of camp, followed by stations that demonstrated various scout skills.  These stations included fire building, creative cooking methods, low C.O.P.E., archery, and a trip to the campís Science Center.  After all of these activities came the most important event of the day: dinner. 

            All of the participants have since joined Scouting units, and those participants who were already scouts have become more active in and comfortable with their troops.  The success of this day at camp has prompted a request to hold another X-treme Adventure Day in the spring.  The lodge will again provide the program for the day, which is tentatively scheduled for 22 MAR.
