Request an Arrow of Light Ceremony

Arrow of Light awardThe 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 Big Cypress District Chapter has assembled teams to conduct Arrow of Light and crossover ceremonies for fifth grade Webelos Scouts. We will do our best to honor your request. These ceremonies do not have to be conducted by the Order of the Arrow. Packs and troops can conduct their own ceremonies (i.e., Cub Crossover CeremonyArrow of Light 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. 

Order of the Arrow logo If you have a small number of Webelos Scouts, 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.

National Order of the Arrow Committee policy states that chapters that perform Arrow of Light and crossover ceremonies for Cub Scout packs are to use the official ceremonies found in the OA Inductions Portal. These ceremonies are to be conducted in a Scout uniform and are no longer permitted to be done in American Indian regalia.  Source
