What Is MikiCorps?
Are you ready for adventure? High Adventure? Did you know that the Boy Scouts of America offers a special High Adventure program that is only available to the youth members of the Order of the Arrow? Did you know that you can spend 2 weeks at Philmont for just $250?
What’s the catch? You spend the first week with your crew providing service to improve the camp. During the second week, you embark on a custom itinerary that you and your team design for yourself. No one gets to design their own itinerary at Philmont - BUT YOU DO!
There are similar programs at the other 4 High Adventure bases (although, to attend the OA High Adventure program at Sea Base you must have already completed an NOAHA program at a different camp). There is even a brand new National OA High Adventure program at the Summit this year for youth Arrowmen from 14-18 years of age. All other programs are for Arrowmen from 16-20.
Those who have attended these programs tell us, unequivocally, that it is a life-changing experience! Mikanakawa Lodge is committed to making this experience available to a large number of Arrowmen in 2014. Those who attend will be a part of an elite Corps of Arrowmen - the MikiCorps 2014.
How do we intend to support you? Here’s one way - the first 50 Mikanakawans who obtain the Lodge Adviser’s signature on their Application Form and attend a National OA High Adventure program this year will receive a travel reimbursement of $100 at the end of the summer. Proceeds from the sale of the 2-piece flap set will help to fund these travel expense reimbursements.
We have more in store for you, but for now the most important thing for you to do is to go to adventure.oa-bsa.org and download the application form for the program you want to attend and then meet with Lodge Adviser Chuck Wagner to get his signature on your completed form.
There are fewer than 500 spots available nationwide for all 5 of these venues and they are filling up fast. We expect the opportunity to be gone soon, possibly as early as March 1st. Don’t miss out on this opportunity for a life-changing experience.
