Fall Fellowship is a highlight event of Kiondaga Lodge! Held each year in September, it is complete with fun activities and cheerful service. Hang out with your fellow Arrowmen and enjoy the good company and food. As always, we will offer the OA Induction, or Ordeal, and Brotherhood Conversion. Additionally, we will host our annual lodge elections on Saturday evening for members online and in person. Read more information below and register today – either for an in person or digital experience!
Upon registering for the online portion of the event, you will be emailed information on how to join the sessions. Prior to the event, you will be mailed all of your event resources. For those completing their induction, this includes your Ordeal Sash, the New Member booklet, and the Digital Ordeal Experience Guide.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have made necessary adjustments to our schedule for the fellowship and allowed for a new online program. Please read more below. We will post updates to our social media platforms and update this website as adjustments are made.
Activities planned for the weekend include Cornhole, Meeting Acorn Boy, Camp Wide Scavenger Hunt, Ultimate Frisbee, Charades, and an after-dark game of Capture the Flag!
We will also have a fun program on Saturday evening complete with skits, songs, and trivia – available to everyone in person and streamed live to our Facebook group.
It wouldn’t be the OA without some cheerful service! We will have many projects around camp to get done, so be sure to bring your work clothes!
Those completing their Ordeal digitally will have the opportunity to give back to their local area with their family.
