Arrowhead Moving Day

The following message is brought to you by Eileen Skidmore, chair of the newly formed Arrowhead Stewardship Committee.  If you can help, please email her directly at

Hi, everyone,

Well, we have the first call for people to help get Camp Arrowhead
back up and running. Lots of stuff was moved from camp last fall and
stored at other Girl Scout Council sites. We need to get it all back
up to camp.

To that end, we are having a Moving Day on Sat., April 5th. We want
to meet at 3 different sites and pick up stuff and then drive it up
to camp. Here is what we need:

At Homestead, on Mt. Hood, we need a truck and a trailer (or 2
trucks) and 4 people to pick up tents, tepees and misc. tools and
take to camp and unload.

At the Council Office, we have a van and a trailer, and a truck but
we need 2 or 3 more people to help load, and drive up to camp and

At Mountaindale, we have a suburban and a trailer, and a truck, but
need 2 or 3 more people to help load, and drive up to camp and unload.

If you can help that day, please e-mail Eileen Skidmore at by Tuesday, 4/1, and say which site you could be at.
Obviously the biggest need is the trucks at Homestead, as well as the
bodies for loading and unloading.

There will also we a work weekend April 19 and possibly the 20th, but
the Stewardship Committee still has to work out details. Stay tuned
for more info next week on the Work Weekend.

For now, moving is the priority.

Thanks, and let me know,



Summer Camp at Arrowhead for 2008 Is ON!

As of March 20, the board of directors has voted to amend the council’s budget to include funding for summer resident camp at Camp Arrowhead.


Possible Employment at Camp Arrowhead

The board will be making a decision as to whether or not to hold resident camp on March 20th. Whatever their decision is, we will post within 24 hours on the Arrowhead blog. If you are at all considering working at Camp Arrowhead this summer or attending camp as a camper, please delay making any final decisions regarding summer employment until after March 20th.

If you have questions, contact the Arrowhead blog and your message will be forwarded to the appropriate person. We will try to get you a response within 24-48 hours.


Updates 3/19/08

Today is the Chevy’s fundraiser! I hope many of you can make it to a Chevy’s Restaurant in your area.

Tomorrow, March 20, is the next board meeting for Girl Scouts — Columbia River Council. One item on the agenda is a budget for resident camp 2008 at Camp Arrowhead. If we are to hold a resident camp this summer, the board must approve an amendment to the 2008 council budget, since it was not included in the original budget. The board meeting will be at 4:30 p.m. at the council office; meetings are always open if you wish to attend. Eileen Skidmore will be presenting the proposed budget to the board.

The How You Can Help page on this blog has now been updated. We are still seeking donations and volunteers to help with ongoing fundraising.
