Youth members must be elected by their Troop. Adult members must be nominated by the Troop Committee. For more information on the election process, see our page for Scoutmasters. From there you must complete the Ordeal to become a member. For more information on the Ordeal, view our Events page.
The Order exists to recognize Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily life. It is Scouting’s National Honor Society and focuses on brotherhood, service, and leadership. Lifelong friendships are made within the Order and meaningful service is given back to Scouting. Scouts are also given the opportunity for leadership development and training.
Scouts are “Youth” members until they turn 21. The Order is a youth-run organization and all officer positions are held by youth members.
The Lodge itself does not have regular meetings. Instead, it is broken up into Chapters that cover different areas of the Chickasaw Council. Many of these Chapters meet on a semi-regular basis. For more information on your local Chapter, view our Chapter pages, contact an Officer, contact your District Chairman, or contact your District Executive. Any of those individuals should be able to provide more information on when and what your Chapter is doing.
There are many ways to get involved in the Order. View our Getting Involved page for more information. Here are a few simple ways to get involved:
