Yes, I realize this article has very little information, but it's better for it to barely exist than to not exist at all. JCowe 04:11, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

council information from Scouting in Texas to be folded in[edit]

Circle Ten Council is the BSA Council chartered to the Central North Texas Area, including Bryan County, Texas, Collin County, Texas, Dallas County, Texas, Ellis County, Texas, Fannin County, Texas, Grayson County, Texas, Hunt County, Texas, Henderson County, Texas, Kaufman County, Texas, Navarro County, Texas, Rains County, Texas, Rockwall County, Texas and Van Zandt County, Texas.

Camp Constantin is a Boy Scout Camp under the Boy Scouts of America Circle Ten Council. Camp Constantin is situated on 385 acres on Possum Kingdom Lake. It is approximately fifty-eight miles west of Fort Worth and twelve miles northwest of Mineral Wells near Graford, Texas. There are 15 campsites for tent camping. Recreational activities include hiking, boating, canoeing, and fishing. Swimming is available during the summer months. There is sightseeing available nearby at the Morris Sheppard Dam and there is a store nearby for purchase of supplies. Possum Kingdom State Recreational Area and Lake Mineral Wells State Park are also nearby.

Camp Constantin is also known as Jack D. Furst Aquatic Base. Camp Constantin opened in 1946, through the generous cooperation of the late Mr. and Mrs. E. Constantin Jr. Of Dallas, Camp Constantin is now permanently available to the Scouts of the Circle Ten Council. The camp is named in memory of Eugene Constantin III, who gave his life in service to his country in World War II.

Circle Ten Council has very strong links with Scouting Ireland. A group from Circle Ten visited Larch Hill in July 2006, with Scouts from Ireland having visited Texas in 2005. [1]

Mikanakawa Lodge 101, founded in 1937, is the Order of the Arrow lodge chartered to BSA Circle 10 Council, which serves North Central Texas, most notably the Dallas area.


The lodge was founded in 1937 by L.L. Hotchkiss after several Scouts expressed their interest in it after attending the 1937 National Scout jamboree in Washington, D.C. Within 7 days of their return, the first Ordeal was held at first Summer Camp session at Camp Wisdom. The first Lodge Chief was Fred Haynes.

In 1994, Mikanakawa Lodge merged with Okiciyapi Lodge. Okiciyapi was allowed to keep their old totem: the thunderbird. As a result, Mikankawa 101 is one of the few lodges to have two totems: the Mikanakawa Owl and the Okiciyapi Thunderbird.

The Lodge today[edit]

Mikanakawa Lodge has a membership of about 2500. The current Lodge Chief is Cody Robson; Brotherhood warrior is Sandy Walker; Ordeal Warrior is Charles Willis; Vice Chief of Service is Janson Ford; Recording Secretary is Jordan Francis; Corresponding Secretary is Jason Follis. The Lodge Advisor is Wade Graves.

The lodge's original totem was the Owl. The lodge also has a second totem, while most lodges have only one. The second totem, the Thunderbird, comes from the 1994 absorption of Okiciyapi lodge who were allowed to keep their totem. Both the Owl and the Thunderbird can be seen on many of the lodge's official patches.

The lodge holds many events, including 5 annual Ordeals, a Native American Pow-Wow, a Fall Fellowship, Annual Dinner, and a Leadership Development Conference. The lodge also sends delegates to the annual Southern Region Section 3 Conclave and recently finished up a large trip to the 2006 National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC).


As of 2006, Mikanakawa Lodge has 16 Chapters: (Listed by Number)

Re: Council information to be folded in[edit]

I added all the information up that wasn't in the article and that was relevant. I think now all that's left is general grammer, word choice, and spelling clean up unless Chris or anyone else can think of anything to add. Chris M. 04:36, 21 September 2006 (UTC)
