The annual Banquet, typically held in early January, is an opportunity to recognize arrowmen for their achievements in the past year. A catered dinner is provided, during which a presentation is made by a guest speaker. The event also includes a silent patch auction for those interested.


Work Weekends & Beaver Days

What would a Brotherhood of Cheerful Service be without cheerful service? Work days, also know as “beaver days” are scheduled throughout the year to knock out any projects that need to be accomplished around Camp Barstow.



Muscogee’s annual Lodge Leadership Development Conference is generally held the same day at the Banquet, and is a training event for newly elected lodge and chapter officers. This one-day event is mandatory for both youth officers and their corresponding adult adviser.



Three times a year, Muscogee’s brothers gather at Camp Barstow for a weekend of fun and fellowship. Starting on Friday night with a campfire and ending on Sunday with a chapel service. Fellowships are great opportunities to promote chapter spirit and competition. Chapters compete in a variety of events such as basketball, football, ultimate frisbee, ceremony teams, and of course, spirit! One-hour service projects are conducted Saturday morning, and a business meeting is typically scheduled shortly after lunch. Saturday evenings present opportunities such as a patch auction and the world-famous Barstow Cinema. All meals (with the exception of Friday night dinner) are included in the registration fee, as well as two cracker-barrels.


Section Conclave, a.k.a. Dixie Fellowship

Imagine, if you will, a typical Muscogee Fellowship multiplied by 10. This is just about the only way to describe this one of a kind OA experience. Once a year, ten lodges from South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia are jammed into a single camp for an action-packed three days of spirit and competition. Throughout the weekend, lodges compete in multiple areas of expertise such as best newsletter to Native American events such as best drum/sing team. Friday night’s opening show sets the mood and kicks things off. The numerous competitions are held at a scheduled time on Saturday, and end just before sundown. Awards are presented after chapel on Sunday morning before we say farewell to our brothers until the next year.
