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 . We meet the second Thursday of each month (September to April) from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm - may change with new year. 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.
Health Form Required for OA Overnight Events
A medical form will now be required for everyone attending any OA event and staying overnight. This is so we will be in compliance with National BSA policy. Day visitors will not be required to have the form however all others will. Bring a COPY (not the original) of the form with you to the event as it might not be returned at the end of the event. BSA Medical Form Note: This form will need to be brought to each OA outing you attend.
Arrowman Service Award
The National OA has inaugurated a new award - the Arrowman Service Award. This award has been authorized to be worn on the OA sash. Arrowmen are encouraged to recommit themselves to the ideals of the Order, increase service and participate in the 100th anniversary of the OA.

2015 National Order Of The Arrow Conference
The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is the premier event of the Order of the Arrow, and is Scouting's second largest national event. Over 10,000 Arrowmen from across the nation gather for an inspirational and unforgettable experience full of fellowship, training, adventure and fun! During NOAC, arrowmen will participate in a 6 day conference which includes top notch training sessions, cool recreational opportunities, evening shows full of theatrics and special effects, and relaxing programs. The 2015 NOAC will be held from August 3 - 8, 2015 at Michigan State University in East Lansing Michigan, and will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow. Arrowmen will travel to NOAC with a contingent from our Lodge and they will stay in a campus dormitory. The conference fee ($575 if registered by Nov) will include transportation, lodging, meals, program fees along with other special items. Everyone attending NOAC in 2015 will also receive a special OA sash which will consist of a red sash with a white arrow. Registration
Last Ordeal of the season is here!
We have one more Ordeal/Brotherhood weekend scheduled this year: September 5-7 at Camp Lazarus. WE NEED HELP! It takes many members to put on a successful Ordeal weekend. We need people to help in the kitchen, as service crew leaders and elangomats, on the ritual team, and more. If you haven’t been to an Ordeal since you were inducted, you are really missing out. The experience is very different for members: you eat great food all weekend, choose your own service, and get to meet (and talk all day to) fellow Arrowmen from troops around our council. If you are not a Brotherhood member, you can become one at any of the Ordeal weekends, too. You will learn more about the Order of the Arrow and get to see the best ceremony it has to offer. Register for the Ordeal weekends at the lodge website.
