History of the ACA Chapter

*This page is a work in progress.

 

Formation of the Chapter and Clans

   In 1999 the Azwit Chapter was absorbed by the Agua Caliente Chapter. The ACA Chapter was formed when the Agua Caliente Chapter and Chemehuevie Chapter merged in 2000. The name ACA was derived from the merger of the 3 Chapters: Agua Caliente, Chemehuevie, and Azwit.

   Because the Chapter is so geographically large, bisected by a mountain range and Joshua Tree National Park, it was difficult for Arrowmen from one half of the Chapter to attend OA meeting and events in another half. In order to solve this dilemma, in 2002 the Chapter was was subdivided into 2 Clans: Agua Caliente and Chemehuevie.

   The Clans operate like a mini Chapter. Each hold their own monthly meetings, perform Arrow of Light Ceremonies for local Cub Scout Packs, and perform their own service projects for the community. Once every quarter (every 3 months) both Clans officially meet together as a Chapter for the Annual ACA Chapter Potluck (January), Sunrise District Spring Camporee (April), Service Project and Chapter Meeting at Camp Emerson (August), and Cahuilla Lodge Fall Fellowship (October).
