The Vigil will be helded at Camp Mountaineer Saturday, October 6th and 7th, 2012, starting at 7:00 PM.

Every year, as the leaves turn and frost creeps closer, there is an auspicious gathering at Camp Mountaineer, October 6th at 7:00 pm. At this time the most dedicated and venerated members of our lodge gather for the sole purpose of once again keeping the Vigil over our own Camp Mountaineer and the Scouting spirit there enshrined.  

Even as the candidates take on their Vigil, those who came before must watch over the journey. All able Vigils are strongly encouraged to attend the full event, which officially begins with a cracker barrel at 9:00 pm on the 6th.

Braving the darkness can only be celebrated in its fullest at the break of day. (October 7th)Keeping with tradition there will be a Vigil Ceremony at the site, Sunday at 7:00 am.

The Vigil Breakfast will be at the Dining Hall at 8:00am.  The Vigil Breakfast is open to all Vigil Honor members and their families.

A note to Candidates: Remember to bring Uniform, sash and triangle, as well as weather appropriate clothing, emergency light, watch, and basic scout tools. You are also encouraged to consider bringing pen and paper and a small, durable artifact of personal significance.
