OA Brotherhood Weekend

June 3-5, 2022 at Camp Rock Enon

Check-in 6 pm Friday evening

Check-out 10 am Sunday morning

My Brothers,

If you are already a Brotherhood or Vigil Member, or even a brand new Ordeal member ( < 6 months), then you know many hands make light work as we strive to make ready for summer camp. As always we will have good food, fun and fellowship, and even another patch auction! For those who are not yet able to attend the Brotherhood ceremony, there will be OA-related activities to attend to during the Brotherhood Ceremony.

If you have not sealed your membership in the Order of the Arrow by obtaining your Brotherhood, you have not completed your induction journey that began months ago with your election by your peers. You then went through your Ordeal where you learned the basics of the Order during a weekend of challenges – spending time in reflection, hard work and having only scant food to rely on, you found that deep within you there is a spark that your fellow Scouts could glimpse. You were given tools to help fan that spark into a flame and now is the time for it to reach full blaze! If you have been an Ordeal member for 6 months or more, you should:

  • Register for Spring Brotherhood Weekend!
  • Prepare yourself for the Brotherhood Challenges, you’ll find them in your OA Handbook.
  • Draft your letter to the Lodge Chief describing how you will contribute to the Lodge, our Camp and your Unit.
  • Come ready to work again as we get Camp Rock Enon ready for our 2022 summer camp season.
  • Finally, come prepared to vote and maybe even run for your Lodge Officers for the 2022-2023 year.

If you wish to serve as a Nimat, please contact our Second Vice Chief, Paul Tracy to get training at paul8tracy@gmail.com.

We hope to see you there!!!
