History

Mawat Woakus Lodge 449

       In January of 1990, the Shawnee Council, headquartered in Lima, Ohio, and the Put-Han-Sen Council, headquartered in Findlay, Ohio, merged their resources to form the Black Swamp Area Council, headquartered in Findlay, Ohio. Four years later the Ketchikeniqua Lodge # 238 and the Eagle Creek Lodge #382 joined forces to form the Mawat Woakus Lodge #449. The arrowmen of the newly formed Lodge chose as their totem “One Gray Fox” (Mawat Woakus). In May of 1994, they issued their first lodge flap. This flap remained in place for two years. Lodge flaps were then released in 1995, 1996, 2002, 2004, 2007, 2013, 2014, and 2015.
       In the nearly 20 year history of Mawat Woakus Lodge, the arrowmen worked hard to bring harmony between the two Lodges by being awarded the E. Urner Goodman Camping Award in 2002. The Lodge continues its dedicated service to both Camp Berry and Camp Lakota. Mawat Woakus Lodge also has a record of being a National Quality Lodge 15 out of its 20 year existence with the latest coming in 2009 as well as Gold Level in the Journey to Excellence program in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016.
