SCOUT BUILD 2016

Habitat for Humanity and Far East Council – Boy Scouts of America are joining hands in 2016 to build houses across Asia-Pacific. Scout Build 2016 will take place in March and April in Philippines, Nepal, China, Thailand, Korea, India, Vietnam, and Indonesia with BSA units involved in building in their country location.  Over 500 Scouts and adult leaders are expected to support this ‘Messenger of Peace’ initiative. This will culminate with a major build day on Saturday April 2, 2016.

The Order of the Arrow Achpatueny Lodge is raising funds to support the event by offering limited edition lodge flaps; with profits supporting the build.  Please see the flyers for additional details.
