During Staff Training at the Summit Bechtel Reserve, OA Foremen taught volunteer staff proper trail-building techniques during a half-day service project building mountain bike trail for the New River Gorge National River.
The Order of the Arrow Summit Experience (OASE) is a 8-day individual program for young Scouts in the OA between the ages of 14 and 17. The OA operates similar programs at each of the other three National High Adventure bases, allowing participants time to provide service before experiencing the program each base has to offer.
OASE participants will continue to provide service to the National Park by constructing a stacked loop mountain bike trail in the Garden Ground/Terry Top area. The young men that participate in the program also learn Leave No Trace ethics as well as good camping practices during their service days. Following the service, the Arrowmen return to the Summit to take part in several High Adventure activities, capped off by a white water trip down the New River.
