Ordeal / Brotherhood Weekend

This event will mark the beginning of our 2016 Ordeal season.
This is usually well attended and we expect about 80-100 candidates.
We need ritual people, elangomats, kitchen crew and general support people for this event.

Do you remember your Ordeal?
Around 50-100 people were involved to make your experience memorable.
Please come out and support your lodge and help these new Ordeal members have a good induction weekend. You only have to experience scant food ONCE. We promise plenty of food, an opportunity to make friends, fun times and hard work.
Be an active Arrowman and make your reservation NOW. The cost is just $20.00 for the weekend but you save $5.00 if you pre-register before May 30th.
It's easy to register - just click on the link below and follow the istuctions.

If you took your Ordeal before August in 2015, you can also take your Brotherhood.
Get a new, fancier sash and learn more about the Spirit of the Order.
Seal your membership in the Order of the Arrow and continue your journey in Scouting.

There are also many other programs happening at an Ordeal. Many different jobs need to be done. We need packets stuffed and prepared for the candidates, people to take pictures during the day, runners to bring tools and water to the work areas and even a few clean up crews.
There is always something to do on an Ordeal weekend.

If you took your Ordeal during the previous year (in 2015) your Ordeal fees included your dues through the end of the calendar year in which you took your Ordeal. You would next need to pay your dues at the beginning of the next calendar year (in 2016).

Just fill out the form as completely as possible, pay $20.00 and we will re-instate you.

I know someone who would like to transfer into Tecumseh Lodge from another lodge,
how can they do it?
All they need to do is fill out the dues form and send it in along with as much information about their previous membership as they can gather and we can transfer them into Tecumseh Lodge. We will contact their previous lodge to confirm their membership.
The cost is only $20.00. They must be registered with a unit in Simon Kenton Council to be a member of Tecumseh Lodge.
