Ordeal Season is Fast Approaching

As we approach the summer months we need to be planning for our Ordeal / Brotherhood events.
These events take a lot of help to make them successful for our new incoming Ordeal members as well as for those working to complete their Brotherhood.
We will hold three Ordeal weekends this year, however they will not be in the usual order as in years past.
The first Ordeal will be held May 31 – June 2 at Camp Lazarus.
The second Ordeal will be held August 16 – 18 at Camp Oyo.
The final Ordeal will be held September 20 – 22 at Camp Falling Rock.
The cost for members to attend these events is $25.00, however if you pre-register at least 5 days before the event you will receive a $5.00 discount making it just $20.00.
New Candidates wishing to take their Ordeal and join the Order of the Arrow can do so for just $50.00.
Those wishing to seal their membership in the Order by completing their Brotherhood can do so for just an additional $25.00.

To register for any of these events just click the appropriate button below. 

Have You Taken Your Brotherhood?

If you took your Ordeal any time prior to this year and you have not yet sealed your membership in the OA by taking your Brotherhood, what’s stopping you? It really not very hard and I can promise you that nobody fails.
All we ask is that you learn a few things and demonstrate them to us. Then you can go through your Brotherhood ceremony and show your commitment to Scouting and the Order of the Arrow. This can be done at any of our Ordeal weekends and the cost is just an additional $20.00 added to the regular cost of the weekend.
For this you will receive a new Brotherhood sash and you will have the opportunity to make a personalized Brotherhood totem.

New this year, if you are taking your Brotherhood you will need to bring your tent.

Information For Candidates

So, you were elected by your Unit to join the Order of the Arrow.
What does this mean?
Should I join the Order of the Arrow?
What’s in it for me?
Here are a few links with information that might help explain it better.
Note: You cannot take your Ordeal and join the Order of the Arrow unless you were elected by your unit to do so in 2023 or 2024.

About Your 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 during the current 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.
How Can I Pay My Dues?
You can pay your dues several ways:
By Mail – by using the dues form which can be found HERE
On Line – Click on this link to pay your dues online (https://scoutingevent.com/441-76671)
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 $25.00 and we will re-instate you.


I want to transfer into Tecumseh Lodge from another Lodge
OA members transferring into Simon Kenton Council from another Council may do so by sending proof of current dues paid in the other Lodge and their Scout ID# to transfer into Tecumseh Lodge.
OA members transferring into Simon Kenton Council from another Council with their OA dues not being current may do so by sending proof of membership in the other Lodge and their Scout ID# to transfer into Tecumseh Lodge.
(Either of these can be done using any of the above mentioned methods)
Note: You can only be a member of the Lodge representing the Council where your primary Scouting membership is registered.
