Location

We will once again be hosting Spring Fellowship at Old Ben Scout Reservation! 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 OBSR.

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 many projects around camp to get done, so be sure to bring your work clothes!

Our projects for Spring Fellowship will focus on conservation rather than camp improvements. 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 ice cream, 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. We have implemented a change in many of the camp protocols using guidance from the Buffalo Trace Council and state guidelines. Some of the specifics are listed below.
