The Shawnee Lodge Prism contingent had a great experience during their four days at the The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve. Their trip included opportunities for service, personal reflection, and of course all the awesome program features that the Summit has to offer!
Prism is a four-day, three-night experience at the SBR. Both youth and adults are invited to attend, and will have access to all of the adventure in the Scott Summit Center, and give back to SBR through a small service project.
Prism’s defining experience will be the inaugural rededication ceremony at the Summit Circle. The Summit Circle is the original ceremony circle from Treasure Island. In 2015, the site of the Order’s founding was transported piece by-piece to the Summit, and was combined with the rocks donated by lodges past and present to create a timeless experience that presents the Order across its 100-year history. Prism guests will be the first Arrowmen to experience the new national ceremonies grounds. Each session of Prism will be hosted by a region, and the program will run through the summer of 2016, only. Guests may attend any session.
Prism’s capstone will be a personal experience at the Summit Circle, the OA’s new national ceremony grounds. They will watch a ceremony at the circle and reflect on the Order. Beyond the ceremony, guests will engage with the SBR in a way no others have.
One day of Prism will include access to all of the Scott Summit Center: BMX, mountain biking, skateboarding, archery, climbing and more. Participants will spend the other day of Prism doing a service project for the Summit to leave their mark on Scouting for generations to come. A beam of light passing through a prism transforms into the full spectrum of color. This program will create the same experience in Arrowmen, giving them new perspective on the Order and transforming them in the process.
