PACHSEGINK LODGE EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES
April 22 – 24, 2016
Section Conclave: The great Section C-7, comprised of Pachsegink and 10 other area Lodges, holds Conclave every year at a local camp. This “super-fellowship” brings together hundreds of Arrowmen to enjoy a weekend of fun, fellowship, training, Native American crafts, singing, competitions, and much more.
April 29 – May 1, 2016
Spring Fellowship: What better way to kick-off the camping season than with a Lodge-wide Fellowship! Come out and try your hand at various activities and competitions, meet and welcome new brothers, drum and sing with the drum team, and experience the best of the outdoor spirit. This is an excellent opportunity to earn your Brotherhood or complete your Ordeal.

Brotherhood Day: Come out for a few hours on a Sunday and earn your Brotherhood honor! Many Arrowmen are not aware that you are not fully inducted into the Order of the Arrow until you become a Brotherhood level member. Complete the journey at this 4 – hour event, and go home with your new sash and a renewed dedication to the ideals of the Order of the Arrow. Members must have been an Ordeal member for at least 10 months to be eligible to earn their Brotherhood.
September 9 – 10, 2016
Urner Goodman Weekend: This event, previously held in the Spring, is being moved to the Fall, to allow 2 Ordeal opportunities in the fall to help ease the inconvenience of no longer being able to complete Ordeals at a summer camp. Earning Brotherhood is also offered at this event, which only lasts from Friday until Saturday. Brotherhood members need only attend on Saturday; Ordeal candidates must arrive Friday night. This is primarily an inductions event, but those Arrowmen wishing to come out and provide service to the community or a camp are welcome to attend.
September 30 – October 2, 2016
Fall Fellowship:. The Fall Fellowship gives you fun, excitement, and camaraderie at a nearby location. With the camp season over, the emphasis is usually shifted from service projects to activities, training, and entertainment. As always, Brotherhood conversion opportunities will be given for all members who have been Ordeal for at least 10 months. This is also a great time to complete your Ordeal if you have not done so. Any members who completed their Ordeal at the E. Urner Goodman Weekend 1 month prior are encouraged to attend, as this is our flagship event!
