Spring Fellowship

Spring Fellowship

March 13-15, 2020
Cherokee Scout Reservation

Spring Fellowship is our annual weekend event held each March. It marks the final Lodge event before our Section Conclave in April and begins the transition period between terms of our Lodge Leadership. A Banquet is held in this regard on Saturday night after a day of games, fellowship, and learning activities centered around the Section Conclave and our Lodge Unit Election operations. The weekend features the elections for our Lodge Leadership as well.

Saturday Night's Banquet is not just a dinner, it is also a celebration! We present our annual Founders' Awards, James E. West Fellowship Award, Red Feather Award, install our new Lodge Chief for the following year, and finally retire to the council ring for our Vigil call-out ceremony.

The event concludes on Sunday morning after breakfast with a time of reflection and a quick cleanup around camp.

We hope to see you there!
