Our Lodge

Kiondaga Lodge is the Order of the Arrow lodge for Buffalo Trace Council, which covers 15 counties in southwestern Indiana. In 2019, we celebrated the 70th anniversary of our first charter approval in 1949. Since then, we have provided countless hours of cheerful service to our community and camp. We host four events (Spring Fellowship, Summer Fellowship, Fall Fellowship, and Winter Banquet) each year for our Arrowmen. At Spring and Fall Fellowship, lots of service is completed around our camp, Old Ben Scout Reservation, to keep the location maintained and ready for events. At Summer Fellowship and Winter Banquet, we take time, gathering in Brotherhood, to have fun and appreciate of all areas of scouting. The totem for Kiondaga Lodge (which translates to “White Oak” in the Piankeshaw language) is the White Oak Acorn. We also regularly participate in region and national events by sending contingents to the National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) and the annual Section C-6A Conclave.
