Cub Scout Ceremonies

As of January 2019. The Order of the Arrow is no longer allowed to conduct Arrow of Light Ceremonies or Webelos Crossover Ceremonies in a Native American ceremony setting, or in any kind of Native American regalia. The National BSA Office and the National Order of the Arrow have developed these two standard ceremonies to be used. If you are a Cub Scout Pack who is looking to do either one of these for your unit. You will need to contact your local Boy Scout Troop to conduct these ceremonies for you. Our OA Chapter will no longer provide these.

2018 – Arrow of Light Ceremony

2018 – Cub Scout Webelos Crossover Ceremony

The OA has provided many special ceremonies for Troops to use.  The OA has also performed special Eagle Award ceremonies.

OA Call Out Ceremony

This is the adopted Call Out Ceremony that the Chapter uses to “Call Out” all those who where elected by their peers in their unit. The Chapter does a Call Out Ceremony at the end of Our District Spring Camporee’s Camp Fire. (We urge everyone who gets called out to attend the May Induction Weekend. This way they are members of the OA for Summer Camp and can attend the Lodge Fall Fellowship In September.)
