Sakuwit Lodge #2 Chapters
Central New Jersey Council

Sakuwit Lodge was formed following the merger of George Washington Council and Thomas A. Edison Council. In 1998, prior to the merger, the two councils were organized as shown in the table below. The naming of District and Chapter was rather easily remembered. The lodge for each district used the same name as the district. For example Mercer Area Lodge was part of Mercer Area District (Mercer Area District/Chapter).

Re-organize Districts
After the merger, the districts from George Washington Council remained unchanged, while the districts from Thomas A. Edison Council were re-arranged into three districts. Sakuwit Lodge created three new chapters, with names chosen to honor former Scout camps in the CNJC area. The 1999 Lodge flap features three clouds to represent the three new chapters.
