Freeze-o-Ree 2024
Yeti Mania!
January 26-28, 2024
Camp William B. Snyder, Haymarket VA
The Freeze-o-Ree is an annual Goose Creek District overnight camping event hosted by our District Chapter of the Order of the Arrow. The weekend is filled with fun and skills activities, beginning with camping on Friday night and ending with check-out on Sunday morning (must depart by 10:00 am). Saturday evening’s campfire includes Awards presentations too bountiful to adequately describe here.
A Horde of Yeti’s – the famed “Abominable Snowman” has descended upon our beloved Camp Snyder. Are  they  friend  or  foe?  We  must  embrace  Yeti  Mania  with  an  amazing  display  of  Scout  Skills,  Fun,  and  an incredible  Campfire,  awesome  enough  to  warm  even  a  Yeti’s  cold  hear Troops who embrace the Yeti Theme will get extra points and special surprises!
Saturday’s program at the Freeze-o-Ree will include events of Competition and Skill for Scouts between Patrols representing Scouts from the participating Units. Each event at the Freeze-o-Ree will be based on the Patrol’s ability to work together as a team, their general Scout skills and their Scout Spirit. Those who gather the most points during the day will reap handsome Awards at the evening festivities. The  annual  Chili  Cookoff  returns  for  2023  –  every  Patrol  should  bring  their  best.  Adults  can  participate i n  a  separate  category,  with  chili  to  feed  the  hardiest Yeti!
