Event Details
Join us for our Fellowship Weekend for all Lodge members! – Fun, service, fellowship, and great food!

All Ordeal members who have been Ordeal for 6+ months can become a Brotherhood member (2nd Degree/Honor) by following these easy requirements (completed at the Weekend):  www.witauchsoman.org/brotherhood

Witauchsoman Lodge #44 is dedicated to maintaining and improving our Camp facilities.  Please join us to make our Weekend a productive endeavor.  The OA has been providing service to the Minsi Trails Council and its camps for over 95 years.  Without this service, the Council would be unable to provide the excellent program it offers to so many youth during the summer and throughout the year.  In order for the Lodge to provide this level of service, WE NEED YOUR HELP.  Lodge Weekends are not just the place to take your Ordeal; they are a time for current members to rededicate themselves to the principles of brotherhood and cheerful service.  We ask that you to come and share a weekend of brotherhood, service, fellowship, and FUN!
