THE 90TH ANNIVERSARY OUTDOOR ADVENTURE
Coleman Lights 90 New Trails to High Adventure
For use in lodge, council, or unit newsletters
In celebration of the BSA's 90th
anniversary and in an effort to continue its strong
relationship with Scouting, the Coleman Company
has committed to help fund the program fees for
90 Scouts from throughout America to attend
a high-adventure experience in the year 2000.
Recipients of the 90th Anniversary
Outdoor Adventureships will receive up to $375 to be
applied toward the outdoor experience of their choosing.
This may include Philmont Scout Ranch, the Northern Tier
National High Adventure Program, the Florida Sea Base,
a local council high-adventure program or a Scout camp,
or a unit high-adventure activity -- any Boy Scout
supported outdoor experience.
Order of the Arrow (OA) youth leadership will
coordinate the selection of Scouts at the troop,
team, council, and national levels. Unit youth
leadership (the patrol leaders' council) will
nominate one Scout, which the unit will then
forward to the local council service center for
pooling a lodge nominee. (All troop and team
nominations must be received by the Scout's
council on or before November 1, 1999). This lodge
nominee will be forwarded to the national selection
committee, composed of the 1999 national OA officers,
for selection of the 90 recipients. These recipients
shall receive Adventureships to attend an outdoor
experience. They will be notified in writing by
January 10, 2000. All troop and team nominees will
receive recognition from the Coleman Company.
All Scouts may apply -- and they are encouraged
to apply. Direct any questions to your OA lodge or
local council service center.
