Register Now For The Fall Fellowship

DHTB PumpkinThe Fall Fellowship is probably the most important meeting of the members of Skyuka Lodge because much goes on at this event that affects the lodge during the year to come.

Those Ordeal members that are eligible may crystallize their tie with the Order by gaining their Brotherhood status.   Like all other lodge events, this one features Indian seminars for those who wish to learn more. Additionally, our chapters will compete against one another in our Chapter Games event.

While this may seem like the last lodge event of the year, it is really setting the stage for the events of the year to come.

Registration will close on the evening of October 25th.  Those who show up without registering will pay event fees plus a $5.00 surcharge.

2015 Summer Ordeal Registration

The Summer Ordeal on August 14-16, 2015 may be the most exciting time in the life of the lodge – as we welcome in new members in large numbers to our brotherhood.

Ordeal candidates might find this page helpful. If you are an Ordeal candidate, please be sure to eat a good meal before arriving at camp on Friday night and please don’t pre-order a steak from the lodge as you’ll be unable to cook it before your adventure begins on Friday night.

Any existing Ordeal member that became an Ordeal member of the lodge at last year’s Summer Ordeal (or before) is eligible to work toward Brotherhood status. Those doing so might find this site helpful:
Brotherhood candidates (and all brothers, really) should also know how to sing the Order of the Arrow song found HERE.

Summer Ordeal registration will be open from late June until sometime on August 9th when it will automagically close. Exact open and close times for registration are regulated by a computer server, so be sure to register early to avoid missing online registration deadline.

Skyuka Lodge Spring Fellowship Registration

oa 100.png

The Skyuka Spring Fellowship is our first lodge event following the Dixie and is always lots of fun.  It is filled with lots of activities as well as opportunities to provide cheerful service to Camp Bob Hardin as we help get it ready for the nearly 1000 campers that will arrive in the coming weeks.  We’ll also elect new lodge and chapter youth leaders as part of the Spring Fellowship.

If you know any scouts or scouters who were unable to attend the Summer Ordeal in 2014, make sure that they are aware of this fellowship as it will be their last opportunity to gain membership in the Order without having to be re-elected.

Also, if you know of any Ordeal members who are eligible for Brotherhood, be sure to make them aware of the upcoming event as well. We look forward to seeing you all at Skyuka Lodge’s Spring Fellowship on May 15th-17th, 2015 at Camp Bob Hardin.

Remember, all attendees must register using the online system.  Even if paying by check mailed to the Palmetto Council office, you will need to use the online form to register (just go to the “Pay Later” option for registration that is shown).  This is a great help to centralize the registration process for our lodge secretary and his advisers as they work to get attendees signed in at the event and helps us plan for buying food for the event.


There is a $5.00 fee added to the regular registration fees for those that show up at the event without signing up online, and those folks are always the last in line for meals as well.

Registration will end automagically on May 10th, 2015.

Registration is now closed for this event.
