The Order of the Arrow is the national honor society of the Boy Scouts of America. Colonneh Lodge is the Sam Houston Area Council's Order of the Arrow Lodge.
The George Strake District Order of the Arrow chapter has assembled teams to conduct Arrow of Light ceremonies for fifth grade Webelos. We will do our best to honor your request. Arrow of Light ceremonies do not have to be conducted by the Order of the Arrow. Packs and troops can conduct their own ceremony.
Please remember that the Scouts providing this service do this on their own time and travel expense. Availability depends upon the busy schedules of the OA members (e.g., school, sports, work, Scouting activities) and their parents. Locations of ceremonies that are outside of the district's boundaries may be difficult for the ceremonialists to attend.
If you have a small number of Webelos, consider combining with another pack. Also, please coordinate the date of the Arrow of Light ceremony with the troop(s) the Webelos are planning to join. The troops most likely will want to send a representative and may even want to have Scouts from their troop participate in the ceremony. Please do your best to provide as much information as possible when requesting a ceremony. It is the responsibility of the pack leadership to secure the location and organize the event. The OA team is there to perform the ceremony only.
Finally, please consider making a donation to the district OA ceremonies fund when we provide a ceremony. The regalia that the OA team uses for the ceremony is costly and does wear out after time. Donations allow us to keep our regalia in good condition.
