Scouts will converge from all over the Four States area and beyond for Scout-O-Rama 2018 in Spring Lake Park April 27-29. This huge regional scout show allows us to showcase Family Scouting to the community-at-large using the outdoor classroom to teach Scout Craft, conservation and good citizenship.
Scouting is all about teaching citizenship and that has to start at the top and trickle down to our youth. If we the adults are to teach leadership, we ourselves must always lead; always reaching further, sometimes going on faith and giving our best. You can’t lead from behind, you must step out front. It is easy to find excuses for lowering ones expectations; however, that is not the Scouting way. Scouting is about pushing forward and building leaders.
Caddo Area Council covers an area as far north as Mena, Arkansas, down to Linden, Texas, east to Prescott, Arkansas, west to DeKalb, TX. This year, Scouts from eight adjoining councils as well as the Girl Scouts will be participating in this ever-growing regional event. The public is invited on April 28 to attend. Starting at 11:30 AM, Mayors from both Texarkana,Texas and Texarkana, Arkansas will honor the day with proclamations designating it as Scout-O-Rama Day. We want to fill Spring Lake Park Texarkana with Scouts, families and potential Scouts. To do that and spread the word properly takes funding.
