Chapters

wa hi nasa chapter mapThe Lodge is divided into 16 chapters, each chapter corresponding to one district. A Lodge member is a member of the chapter corresponding to the district where his primary Scouting registration lay. Each chapter is led by its officers consisting of a Chapter Chief, Vice Chief, and Secretary. An adult Chapter Adviser is appointed by the district.

Lodge Events

oa 3d logoWe have several events throughout the year in the  Wa-Hi-Nasa Lodge. Here is a short description of some of them. See the events section for details on upcoming events. 

Order of the Arrow University – Want to be a better leader? Want to have some fun? If so this weekend is for you. The event is set to help Arrowmen learn to be better leaders. Fun and Fellowship and Leadership Skills fill the weekend. The leadership skills taught will help improve the Order and their Troops back home. Arrowmen spend time honing their craft when it comes to Ceremonies or American Indian Events. Many more things are taught at this training event, but most importantly Arrowmen have a chance to learn more about activities in the Order of the Arrow and get a better understanding of where they can fit into our organization.

Conclave – This is the event where Arrowmen from all across the Section come together for a weekend of fellowship and competition. Wa-Hi-Nasa is a member of Section SR-6N with 8 other Lodges from all over Tennessee, Kentucky, and Mississippi. Conclave is a mix of fun, fellowship, training, and Lodge development. Typically, the weekend gatherings include a morning of training sessions, with a national training topic and an afternoon of competitions to provide Lodge team building, training, and just plain fun. The competitions in our section are tallied for the much coveted “Quest for the Golden Arrow” award.

Ordeals – These are typically the biggest events of the year. At both the Spring and Fall Ordeals, we have the opportunity to induct new members into the OA. These two events also allow us to give back to our camp. Members and Ordeal candidates have an opportunity to truly show why we are the Brotherhood of Cheerful Service. Not only do we induct our new Ordeal members, but this is the first chance for existing Ordeal members to seal their membership in the Order by becoming a Brotherhood member.

Fall Fellowship – The Fall Fellowship is a time for all Arrowmen to unwind and relax with an event meant to be exactly what the name is: Fellowship. With fun events, great food, and most of our brotherhood, you don’t want to miss Fall Fellowship. Other activities known to take place at the Fellowship is the year’s last chance to seal your membership in the Brotherhood, a call out for those who will be receiving the Vigil Honor, and always some kind of show. This event is known for all kinds of themes that bring us together as a Lodge. Fellowship is truly the “can’t miss” event of the year.

Winter Banquet – Awards, fellowship, the year-in-review slideshow and installation of new Lodge Officers are all part of this evening’s gathering. The Winter Banquet is typically the first Saturday in December when the Lodge gathers to look back on what the year has brought and all that we, as a Lodge have accomplished. This is a time to celebrate with your fellow Arrowmen and honor those who have done their job well. This meal is always ended with the presentation of the Founder’s Award. Chapters are recognized as Honor Chapters and many individual awards are given from the Lodge. Not only do we look back but we also get a glimpse of what the next year will bring with the induction of the next years’ Chapter and Lodge Officers.

Winter Camp – What more can you say about a year in the Wa-Hi-Nasa Lodge? Winter Camp is a camping opportunity that the Lodge provides for any Boy Scout who wants to camp. Merit Badge sessions, fun activities, shows, and did I mention three square meals a day in the dining hall? This Council event is completely designed and staffed by the Wa-Hi-Nasa Lodge. Always from Dec 27th to the 31st, Winter Camp has filled a much needed niche in the Council’s scouting program. So Arrowmen, look to serve as staff at one of the greatest service events we provide for Scouts in Middle Tennessee. Leadership opportunities are waiting for you!

Crackerbarrels – Like the restaurant, but better! Every Wednesday night at Summer Camp we have an opportunity to gather for a time of fellowship with those Arrowmen who are staying at camp. The Lodge provides desert and snacks for all Arrowmen at camp. This is also another opportunity to seal your membership with the Brotherhood. This is just a great time for Fun and Fellowship. The Wa-Hi-Nasa lodge is asked to help out at many events throughout the year. Please check the calendar for details on lodge events.
