    March 7 Camp Service Day

    The first camp service day of 2015 is this coming Saturday, March 7! We're meeting on the porch at Stamler at 8:30am. The main project for the day is the restoration of Kawida's old ceremony ground. It's a big job, so we need your help!! But what about lunch? We've got you covered! The Kawida kitchen team will be cooking barbecue and baked beans.

    Speaking of the kitchen team...if you'd like to help cook at lodge events, but don't know how, there will be a kitchen orientation training starting at 9:00. You'll learn about the kitchen equipment, food safety and prep, and you'll get to help cook and serve the day's lunch. If you're interested in cooking, this is the place for you!

    The event is free. Registration is not required, but please send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it so we know how many will be attending.

    See you March 7 at 8:30am!


    Conclave 2015

    Conclave 2015 will be held at Camp Buck Toms in Tennessee from April 17-19. If you haven't signed up already...what are you waiting for? Conclave is going to be an amazing event! It will be a lot like NOAC, except everyone can attend! (Yes, that means you!!) There will be campfire shows, fun events, trainings, good food, and lots of fellowship with Arrowmen from around the Section. Camp Buck Toms is only a four hour drive, which makes travel easy. Another good thing: Kawida isn't the service lodge, which means we get to relax and have fun...a well-earned rest after the phenomenal job we did with Conclave last year!

    Living the Dream in 2015!

    2015 will be unlike anything you've ever seen! This year is going to be the BEST year EVER for Kawida Lodge! The best news? You can be a part of it!

    Our slogan is "Living the Dream." If you were at Winter Banquet, you heard Chief Nathan discuss the lodge's vision—to be a model of the OA's program put into action successfully with our own unique flavor—and the lodge's goals: "Dynamic Events, Exciting Activities, Engaging Program, and Belonging as Brothers." When we are fulfilling these goals, we will be achieving our vision and Living the Dream!

    The lodge is a fun and exciting place! These goals are designed to help the lodge become even more fun—and spread the fun around! The OA is a brotherhood or cheerful service, and we'll be emphasizing that in 2015.

    So how can you join the fun? Glad you asked!

    Often, messages from the lodge like this one will now say, "You should attend this upcoming event." Well, we're not going to do exactly that. Kawida 2015 includes lodge events, but is so much more!

    Our shared journey with Kawida 2015 begins at Indian Winter, but it definitely won't end there. We'll give you a preview of what you can expect from Indian Winter in two weeks, so check back then!

    For now, start getting excited. We're going places in 2015, and we want you to come along!
