Would You Like To Pay Your 2018 Tecumseh Lodge Dues?
To maintain your membership in the Order of The Arrow and Tecumseh Lodge you need to pay your dues each year. If you are not a dues paid member you lose the right to call yourself a member of the Order of the Arrow. If you are not a member of the OA you also lose the right to wear the Lodge Flap or other symbols or patches for the OA. You must be registered in a Simon Kenton Council Scouting unit to be a member of Tecumseh Lodge.
When Do I Need To Pay My Dues? Our Lodge year is from January 1st to December 31st, so your dues need to be paid at the beginning of each calendar year.
I'm a Newer Member - Weren't my dues included in my Ordeal fee? If you took your Ordeal within the last year, 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. A calendar year is from January 1st to December 31st.
How Can I Pay My Dues? You can pay your dues several ways:
By Mail - using the paper dues form which can be found on the FORMS page.
On Line - Just click on the "Pay Your 2017 Lodge Dues" or the "Pay Your 2018 Lodge Dues" link at the bottom of this article.
In Person - You can pay in person at any lodge event or at our lodge booth at the University of Scouting.
I have not paid my dues for a long time, how can I become a member again? If you have not paid dues for a while it's easier to join again than you think. 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 click on the "Pay Your 2017 Lodge Dues" or "Pay Your 2018 Lodge Dues" link and follow the instructions for transferring. They can also fill out the paper 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.
Every 3 years, Tecumseh Lodge produces a Where To Go Camping Book which is available for our Scouting units to use as a resource in their program planning. The latest version is available by clicking on the link below. We would like to thank Cole Niemantsverdriet and John Birle for their work in completing this project.
Lodge Information Book The 2018 Lodge Information Book is available by clicking the link below. This is a PDF version which you can just reference on-line, or download to your computer, tablet or phone so you always have it with you. This version will be updated as needed.

Ordeal / Brotherhood September 7 - 9, 2018 Camp Lazarus This will be our Final Ordeal of the 2018 season.
If you are a Candidate to take your Ordeal this year and you haven't done so yet, this will be your last opportunity. You are only eligible for one year from when you were elected. To be eligible again you would need to be elected again in another year.
We need ritual people, elangomats, kitchen crew and general support people for this event. Remember your Ordeal. At least 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.
The cost is just $20.00 for the weekend, but you can save $5.00 for members if you register by the Sunday prior to the event and only $45.00 for Candidates who will be joining the Order of the Arrow.
If you took your Ordeal IN 2017 OR BEFORE, you are also eligible to take your Brotherhood for an additional $20.00. 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!

Named for the famed Greek Forums of antiquity, this event will provide both training through demonstration and lecture along with a new focus on idea sharing and open discussion. Plan to join us this November 2-4, 2018 at Camp Lazarus for an exciting weekend of fun, learning, and fellowship.
