Tecumseh Lodge
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.

Special fun June meeting - see details below. 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 (no Meeting) and in August we meet on the second Thursday. 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. 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.

Special Fun Chapter Meeting June 5

The June Tendeuchen chapter meeting is a fun outing at Laze Kraze June 5, 2014 at 7:30 pm. We will have a brief meeting to get up-to-date on summer events and then play the Ultimate LASER Tag. Lazer Kraze is at 459 Orange Point Drive, Lewis Center, OH 43035 just off US 23. Two rounds cost $14. More info on Lazer Kraze at http://www.lazerkraze.com/lk3/index.asp. There is also an inflateables option (jousting, climing, etc.) for $4 more if the group decides to also do that.

Ordeal season is here!

We have three more Ordeal/Brotherhood weekends scheduled this year: June 27-29 at Camp Oyo, August 1-3 at Camp Falling Rock, and 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.


The Section Conclave is an event that draws Arrowmen from across Ohio, West Virginia, and beyond. It brings together six different Lodges for one weekend. This year it will be held May 30- June 1 at the Camp Mountaineer in Morgantown WV. There will be Waterfront, Shooting Sports and COPE. There will also be competitions, opening and closing shows, Saturday Night party, and lots of patch trading. This is a great event that everyone should attend. Registration

Staying In Touch

We have a Facebook Group Page - Tendeuchen Chapter OA - (closed registration) for the Chapter. Request to join and someone will add you. Once membership in our Chapter is verified you will be provided access to the Facebook Group.
