Location

We will host our annual Fall Fellowship at Old Ben! Old Ben has been the home to Order of the Arrow events for many years, ever since our lodge began construction of the camp itself. We will eat in the Hasse Dining Center, chapel will be held in the Morris Chapel, and our cheerful service will be done all around camp. You can find driving directions on Google Maps or type in the address, 5735 E County Road 175 N, Winslow, Indiana 47598. A camp map is available under Resources and will be given to participants unfamiliar with Old Ben. We look forward to the opportunity to come back to the camp which was our home for many years.

Lodge Elections

Held each year at the Fall Fellowship, we will be hosting our annual lodge elections. New officers are sworn in at the 2022 Winter Banquet in January 2023. An elected position in the lodge is a great way to expand your leadership experience, something you can include on your resumé, and allows you to have a direct impact on lodge program. Elected positions include Lodge Chief, Vice Chief of Activities, Vice Chief of Inductions, Vice Chief of Publications, Secretary of Recording, and Vice Chief of Finance.

Be sure to fill out the lodge officer petition form linked below if you are interested in running! It is due on Saturday at 3PM.

Activities

Activities planned for the weekend include Cornhole, Meeting Acorn Boy, Ultimate Frisbee, Charades, and—as is tradition—an after-dark game! Please bring your glow sticks and neon clothes to join in with the Neon Theme over the weekend. The activities committee is seeking your help, so if you would like to run an activity, please email activities@kiondaga.org

Cheerful Service

It wouldn’t be the OA without some cheerful service! We will have some community service projects alongside some projects for camp.

Every OA member—Ordeal, Brotherhood, and Vigil—and Ordeal Candidates participates in our service projects.

Trading Post

Who doesn’t love the trading post? We will offer a wide selection of candy, squishee flavors, snacks, and more! Be sure to check out the silent patch auction and the various camping supplies that might come in handy.

Additionally, the trading post is the place to go if you need any help, whether it be with the schedule or a question about the event.

COVID-19 Precautions

We have evaluated this event to provide a fun experience to our members while keeping them safe.
