Ordeal / Brotherhood
July 21 - 23, 2017
Camp Oyo

Come out and join us for our second Ordeal / Brotherhood in 2017. This event will be held at Camp Oyo. To make this a successful weekend, we need help from our members. The areas where we need the most help is Elangomats to lead our candidates and kitchen staff to help cook for everyone. If you could help in one of these areas we would appreciate it but anything you could do would be a great asset.
The cost to attend will be $20.00, however if you pay by July 16th you can get a $5.00 discount making it just $15.00 for the weekend. Cabins will be available at this event.

Have you sealed your membership in the order of the Arrow by completing your Brotherhood?
If you took your Ordeal anytime in 2016 or before you're eligible to complete this experience. The cost is just and additional $20.00 and it's easy to do.

Where To Go Camping

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.

Have You Paid Your
2017 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 HERE.

On Line - Just click on the "Pay Your 2017 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 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.
