Wahinkto Lodge #199
Order of the Arrow members are encouraged to attend lodge meetings and to take full advantage of all that the OA has to offer. Wahinkto Lodge has many opportunities for service, leadership development, ceremonies, and more. As a member of the OA, Arrowmen can participate in exclusive lodge events (e.g. the Lodge Banquet and Fellowship Weekends), regional events (e.g. Section Conclave), and national events (e.g. National Order of the Arrow Conference). Arrowmen can even serve a valuable role to their unit and lodge by serving as OA unit representative. This role qualifies as a position of responsibility toward the rank of Eagle Scout. The OA has something for everyone.
All of our event specifics will be posted on the calendar tab of the lodge page. However, here is a look to the typical events that Wahinkto Lodge hosts:
The lodge banquet is held at the beginning of each year and is an opportunity to gather for a night of celebration, share their appreciation for the outgoing officers, elect the new lodge officers, and celebrate the past year’s accomplishments.
Lodge fellowship and induction weekends happen throughout the year and are opportunities for our candidates to become members of our lodge, eligible members to complete their Brotherhood conversion, and overall friendship and fellowship.
Section conclave is an annual event where nine lodges from Gateway Section 2 (G2) get together for fellowship, competitions, and lots of fun while celebrating the traditions of the Order of the Arrow. Scouts from all over Texas have a blast participating in the numerous special events, games, over the top activities, fun, ceremony and dance competitions, awesome shows, lots of patch trading, and so much more.
Staffing Winter Camp is an outstanding opportunity to serve Scouting through working at Camp Sol Mayer from December 27-30.
