The Natowa - New Years

Spring Conferences

Kon Wapos Lodge will be gathering at our camps in June for service, fun and fellowship. Hundreds of OA members will provide service at our camps, induct new members and have some fun & fellowship! Saturday night food, fellowship games and more. All members are invited to join us as we prepare our camps for the summer season and welcome our new members into the Order of the Arrow. Ordeal members are encouraged to complete their Brotherhood. Serving as an Elangomat (guide for Ordeal candidates) is a great way to demonstrate your service to the lodge. Check “yes” during registration if you are willing. We need youth members (under 21) to conduct the ceremonies.

Service projects include:
• Campsite preparation & clean-up
