What's Lumber Society All About?

Imagine being in Boy or Girl Scouts again, only you get to have drinks, learn, and connect with other great people! It's open to everyone. No matter how big or small, young or old, there is a place for you in the Neighborwoods. Lumber Society was made because we wanted to have a space where people within a community could feel a deeper sense of belonging.

How Do I Join?

Getting involved with the Lumber Society is simple and FREE to join! All you have to do is take the Troop Quiz, which will determine what Troop you're in.

What Are Troops?

The Lumber Society is broken down into 4 Troops. 

Owls | mallards | racoons | beavers

Think of it as the team you're representing.

What type of events do you have?

By joining Lumber Society you'll be able to choose a few different ways you can engage. Lumber Society has three specific events each month for the Troops. 

Education | Outreach | Social

Education - Knowledge is power! Lumber Society classes include building a fire, archery camp, gardening, self-defense, and other classes. Plus, each class comes with a corresponding badge. Finish each class and the required tasks to earn your patch. We tend to have classes featuring modern homesteading and survival as our main focal point.

Outreach - Buzz Mill believes in giving back and growing our community. Outreach is a community based event that is within our Neighborwoods ( what we call the Buzz Mill community). These events can range from river clean up, aiding the local Trail Foundation, to helping plant gardens for school. If you enjoy giving back to the community then these type of events are for you.

Social - Every Thursday is Troop Thursday. Come into Buzz Mill with your handkerchief/vest on with your patches visible and receive special prices and prizes just for you. Imagine coming into the bar with your Troop. You go to the counter and the bartender greets you and sees your badge. He calls an opposing Troop over and asks the two Troops if they would like to play a game. The game can range from a battle of wits to a feat of strength! The winning Troop gets a price/prize that is unique that night. 

Also, once a month we'll have a social gathering where we will play games with even bigger prizes. This is also where you can earn some extra rare Lumber Society gear. (You can earn extra rare gear from just about any function so don't worry.) 

How much time do I have to commit to the Lumber Society?

Attend the events you prefer, and get connected in whatever way you feel fit. The more involved you are, the more you gain knowledge, prizes, and connection with the other Troops! Some members help lead the events and aid in set-up, and others just come to the social events. There is no wrong way to be involved, but we, of course, hope to see you as much as possible!


How do I get Lumber Society Merch and Gear? 

You can purchase Lumber Society items at the brick & mortar stores and on our online store. We will also have an exclusive shirt for campers who live in the Neighborwoods, the 2 mile radius around Buzz Mill locations. (NOT YET RELEASED)
