Order of the Arrow

Welcome to the Tendeuchen Chapter website. The Tendeuchen Chapter (pronounced ten-DOY-chen) is made up of all the Arrowmen who are registered in the Buckeye District, Simon Kenton Council.

Our activities include participation in Lodge functions, such as the Ordeal induction weekends, fellowships, and training, as well as special Chapter activities. We have performed a number of service projects in the past, especially at Camp Lazarus, and we have an active Native American dance team and Venture Crew who make appearances at Eagle Courts of Honor, Blue and Gold Banquets, and the Maple Sugar Festival. Every year we also have a Chapter Fellowship in March at Camp Lazarus as part of the Maple Sugar Festival.

The Tendeuchen Chapter normally meets in conjunction with Roundtable first Thursday of every month. Roundtable starts at 7pm and all are welcome, our chapter meeting will be 7:30-8:30 pm as a break-out session. We meet at the Northwest Christian Church, 1340 Fishinger Rd., 43221 in Upper Arlington. Exceptions are July and August which have no meetings. All members of the Order of the Arrow are welcome at these meetings.

Our Chapter operates a Native American dance team . Practice information is below when appropriate. Anyone interested in joining the dance team is welcome to attend. No experience or even talent necessary. Young women 14 to 20 are also invited to join.
