    Fall Ordeal

    The Fall Ordeal is less than a week away! This will be the last ordeal in 2014, and the standard is set high from the ordeals earlier this year. We need your help to make it the best Ordeal that Kawida Lodge has ever seen!!!

    If you have been nominated for membership in the Order, this is your last chance this year to complete the Ordeal, so be sure to sign up! If you completed your Ordeal more than ten months ago, you are eligible for Brotherhood! Check the 'Brotherhood Conversion' box on your registration form. If you have just completed your Ordeal recently, we want to meet you! Come out and see what the Order looks like after your Ordeal, make new friends, and enjoy good food! If you are already Brotherhood, we'd love to have your help!

    Check out these links for registration and the Ordeal packing list!

    See you at Camp McKee on Friday, September 5th!!


    Second Summer Ordeal Recap

    The Second Summer Ordeal was a great event! Candidates completed several service projects, including tearing down cots in the campsites and putting them in storage and removing brick from the Adirondack Shelters. 23 candidates successfully completed the Ordeal, and seven members sealed their membership in the Order by converting to Brotherhood.

    Thanks to all the Arrowmen who came out to help, and congratulations to our new members!!!


    Second Summer Ordeal

    The Second Summer Ordeal will be held August 8-10 at Camp Mckee. If your troop nominated you for membership in the Order of the Arrow, come to this Ordeal to become a member of the Order! Once you are a member, you can attend all our awesome Lodge events and be a part of next year's centennial NOAC (National Order of the Arrow Conference)!

    If you are an Arrowman already, you can still attend! Ordeals are fun events filled with service, good food, and fellowship. You can come hang out, talk with your brothers in the Lodge, play games, and help make the event run smoothly! Also, if you are an Ordeal member and it has been over 10 months since your Ordeal, you can seal your membership in the Order by converting to Brotherhood.

    The Second Summer Ordeal will be a great event! Sign up online now by clicking here, or download and print a paper form here!

    Summer Camp Ordeal Recap

    The Summer Camp Ordeal was held June 27-28. At this event, there were 14 Scouts and Scouters who successfully completed their Ordeal, and one Arrowman who sealed his membership in the Order by converting to Brotherhood. As service, the candidates completed a new bridge along the Pioneer Mountain Trail between the Lee Shelter (Dan Beard Area) and the PMT trailhead along the main camp road. In addition to the new bridge, they installed several signs throughout camp.

    The Ordeal Ceremony was unique at this event. For the first time in many years, the ceremony was held at the old ceremony grounds, otherwise known as Allowat's Place.


    Spring Ordeal a Success!

    Spring Ordeal 2014 was a success! Nine candidates become members of the Order of the Arrow, providing great service to Camp McKee and the Blue Grass Council! We helped get McKee ready for summer camp, removed stumps from a new ceremony grounds, and provided staff for the council's Sporting Clays event!

    Thanks to everyone who came out and helped! Congratulations to our new brothers!
