OA New Member Induction Weekends


Congratulations on your election as a candidate for the Order of the Arrow, Scouting’s National Honor Society!  Our Order recognizes campers who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives.

If you were elected by the members of your unit but that have not been fully admitted,  you are considered a Candidate.  As a candidate, you would need to attend one of the Pow Wows in the year you were elected to become a member of our lodge.

If you already have your OA Sash, you are a Member.  We would encourage all of our members to come back out and help us induct new members into our lodge.  If you are a member, please see the Council Calendar event for  Members.   

When are the Induction Weekends?

Your next step to become a member of Na Tsi Hi Lodge is to attend one of our two Member Induction Weekends (also referred to as Service Weekends), which are scheduled as follows:

  • Spring Service & New Member Induction Weekend (at Forestburg)
    • Event Dates : June 5 - June 7, 2020 -- EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO COVID19
    • On-Time Registration Deadline: May 26
    • Late Registrations: $50 per candidate
  • Fall Service & New Member Induction Weekend (at Quail Hill)
    • Event Date: September 11 - 13, 2019
    • On-Time Registration Deadline: August 28

You must complete one of these two weekends to become a member of our Lodge and Scouting's Honor Society.  If you miss both weekends in a calendar year, you would need to be re-elected by your unit.
