From Our Chapter Chief

Every month we have a meeting at the LDS Church in Naperville on the second Thursday at 7:30 pm (at the same time and place as District Round Table). This is the primary method of communicating information from the Lodge to the individual members. We always have something fun going on at the meeting-this month is Styrofoam plate airplanes. All current OA members and Elected Ordeal Candidates are encouraged to attend.

All OA members are required to pay annual dues of $20. You can also pay for your dues and 4 discounted lodge events (spring and fall fellowships, winter banquet, and frendship powwow). If you have not done so, please pay your dues at OA41.org. Every penny of your dues goes straight to the OA to provide all of the awesome experiences throughout the year for our members.

As always, feel free to contact Mr. Hedborn or I with any questions,


OAPurpose of the Order of the Arrow

To recognize those campers – Scouts and Scouters – who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives and by such recognition cause other campers to conduct themselves in such a manner to warrant recognition.

  • To develop and maintain camping traditions and spirit.
  • To promote Scout camping, which reaches its greatest effectiveness as part of the unit’s camping program, both year-round and in summer camp, as directed by the camping committee of the Council.
  • To crystallize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others.
