OA New Member Induction Weekends

COVID-19 Protocols

We will update conclave registrants shortly before the start of the event with details regarding COVID-19 protocols that will be enforced at the event. We intend for this event to happen in person and in a safe manner. As of right now, participants should expect to bring and wear face masks at the event. More information is forthcoming.

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 Induction Weekends 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:
