CENTRAL REGION "AMERICAN INDIAN SEMINAR" TO BE HELD AT CAMP BELZER AUGUST 7-10, 2014
For Arrowmen all across the country, 2014 is the Year of the Lodge. This is a time to focus in on our individual lodge programs to make them the best they can be and to prepare ourselves for a great milestone, the 100th anniversary of our Order.
The Central Region is doing its part to support the theme of “Year of the Lodge” by hosting an American Indian Seminar on August 7-10, 2014 at Camp Belzer in Indianapolis, IN for all Arrowman throughout the Central Region.
This seminar will give guests the tools to better the American Indian Affairs, Ceremonies, and Inductions programs of their respective lodges. All of the trainers are the best of the best from around the country. Not only that, but there will be a lot of fun activities and shows to get everyone excited for NOAC 2015!
