Lodge Updates


Lodge Events

**April 2021 UPDATE: Kanwa tho Lodge is still following policies set forth by the COVID-19 Task Force of Three Harbors Council. Events are able to be scheduled with restrictions in place. General membership will be able to attend these events. 
**AUGUST 2020 UPDATE: Kanwa tho Lodge has created three opportunities for candidates to complete their Ordeal or Brotherhood. Please visit the front page at www.Kanwatho.org for dates and details.
**JULY 29 UPDATE: Plans are in the works for induction-only weekends for September. This means that we will conduct limited-capacity Ordeal, Brotherhood and Vigil inductions events while complying with all required safety policies. Due to the limited allowed capacities for groups, a general "fellowship" for current members will not be held at the same time. Only candidates completing their Ordeal, Brotherhood, or Vigil Honor  will be allowed to register and be admitted into camp. Candidates: stay tuned to the lodge website, your emails and your snail-mail boxes for further information
**Original Message: Following the guidelines from Three Harbors Council, the Boy Scouts of America and state and federal guidelines, all in-person Scouting events are canceled until at least May 18, 2020.
This means that the Spring Fix-it and Spring Fellowship have been canceled.
We are working to plan other dates in the late summer or fall so that there are still two opportunities for Ordeal and Brotherhood candidates to complete their inductions, and so that our camps get the needed service we provide. Please stay tuned to this website and our social media (above) for updates on new event dates.

National Updates
