2017 Conch Crazziness


Password to enter registration: CouchCraziness

Registration closes 5/5 at noon

May 5th - May 7th

Pre-Sale price through April 29th is $30.

On-Time price through May 5th  is $35.

Price includes camping, two (2) patch set, and breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday.


Conch Craziness is THE fellowship of Nok-Su Chapter. Nok-Su is a chapter of O-Shot-Caw Lodge and the most southern chapter in the continental United States.

Being one of the smallest chapters, Conch Craziness is one of the most open fellowships known. Any Arrowman is welcome to register and attend. We have had Arrowman from as far north as Jacksonville.

We are also trying to promote the OA so we are allowing OA members to invite a Boy Scout who is not in the OA yet. Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters that are already OA may bring more than one non-OA scout from their unit.

We will have on-site activities like games, movies, kayaking, service projects, and more. For those who want to participate in the off-site activities, there are extra costs associated. We have partnered with Sea Base for an off-shore fishing trip. There is a discount for the snorkeling trip out of Bahia Honda. Historic Tours of America has also offered discounts for their venues in Key West. We have found that with the wide variety of Scouters who attend that those who do not live in the Keys tend to want to explore them. By offering off-site activities, we are promoting opportunities for fellowship away from camp.

Sunday morning the Vigil Honor members have breakfast at a local establishment and we have a special third patch to our set for them. Basically, the patches are sold to the Vigils and the proceeds pay for the meal and tip.
