Activities for adults and kids

Nationwide, local groups of members come together regularly for social, educational and volunteer activities. Participation is not required. However, many members choose to get involved in their area.

Making an impact during the pandemic

Social-distancing efforts caused Modern Woodmen to temporarily modify chapter and youth service club events nationwide. However, our members continue to make a local impact. With the COVID-19 Relief Program, Modern Woodmen gave chapters, Summit chapters and youth service clubs access to funds to make a direct monetary donation to local nonprofit and public organizations. From mid-March through May, members donated nearly $1.1 million to community causes through the temporary program. Learn more >
