2015. KEN WIEDMAN, Camporee Chief, selected the theme "Amerian Indian Culture Past and Present." Ken’s passion for learning about American Indian History started after he attended the 2nd annual Florida Indian Hobbyist Association Pow-Wow (FIHA) with his brother Dennis, who at that time was on the O-Shot-Caw Lodge Dance Team. As time went on, the entire Wiedman family had this passion. When Ken’s daughter turned 15 they had started “Explorer Post 4” with the emphasis on American Indian Culture / High Adventure. The emphasis was on the proper way for the “Youth Members” to share and educate the American Indian Culture through Dance & Drum programs to the public in a way that was presented with proper Etiquette. This was very evident for the past many years in the Indian Village of this Camporee.
At this camporee the O-Shot-Caw Lodge 265 was also celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Order of the Arrow.
Ken started in the scouting program at age 8 ½ in Pack 439 and then crossed over to Troop 438 in Opa-Locka, FL. Ken has now been a registered Boy Scout for 51 years.
