Fall Induction Weekend

by Aaron Crawford on August 14, 2017

Our second Induction Weekend of the year is almost here! Join us this weekend (August 18-20) at Camp Sequoyah for a weekend full of cheerful service as we induct more than a hundred new members into Coosa Lodge and the Order of the Arrow.

If you’ve been an Ordeal member for 10 months or more, it’s time to seal your membership by attaining Brotherhood! Just talk to the friendly check-in staff when you arrive at camp for more info!

Sign-ups for 2018 NOAC will also begin this weekend. At this time, only the youth slots are open for registration. If you are an interested youth, please bring a $100 deposit. The cost of the entire trip has not been finalized, but it is estimated to be around $700.

This weekend is the last opportunity to go through the Ordeal for those who were elected before March 2, 2017. If you miss this Induction Weekend, you will have to be re-elected to the Order by your troop.

Final Details

The Lodge will be providing lunch during the day, so no need to worry about having to bring your own. Also, for every four hours that you volunteer, you will be eligible to purchase a Coosa Lodge service flap for five dollars.

The address for Camp Westmoreland is 520 Westmoreland Road
Florence, AL 35634. Follow signs to Camp Westmoreland after turning off of Hwy 72 (Florence Blvd) at Co. Rd. 27 (Bennett Way) next to Service Master.
