Mowogo Lodge Activities
Mowogo Lodge has four Lodge functions each year, and participates in Section, Regional, and National events.
Spring Fellowship is held in March at Camp Rainey Mountain. This weekend is the first opportunity for Order of the Arrow candidates to participate in the Ordeal and become Lodge members. This is primarily a work weekend and Lodge members and candidates serve the Council by participating in construction and maintenance projects throughout camp.
Conclave is a gathering in April of the nine Lodges in Southern Region - Section 9. It is a weekend of great fellowship with opportunities for training and competition in Indian Events, Lodge Administration Events and the Quest for the Golden Arrow. Hosting Conclave rotates between the Lodges of the Section.
PreCamp is another Ordeal/work weekend held in late May just prior to Camp Rainey Mountain opening for Summer Camp. The focus of the weekend is preparing the camp for the summer campers.
Fall Pow Wow
Held in September, Pow Wow is another fun weekend with competitions similar to Conclave and includes training opportunities and competitions but with the Lodge Chapters competing against each other. Lodge and Chapter Officer elections are also held.
Held in early December, the Christmas Banquet is an evening of fellowship and feasting during which families of Lodge members join in the celebration of the accomplishments of the Lodge during the past year. Various awards are presented, and the new Lodge and Chapter leaders are inducted.
Lodge Leadership Development Course
LLDC is a weekend-long event during which new Lodge and Chapter leaders learn the leadership skills required to carry out their new responsibilities.
National Order of the Arrow Sponsored Events
National Leadership Seminar (NLS) is a weekend long seminar where National and Regional trainers gather to provide leadership training to individuals selected by their Lodges to participate.
National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is held every other year, usually on a college campus. Thousands of OA members from around the country and the world gather for a week of fellowship, training, competition, and entertainment.
