Please note that because of the youth ceremonialists' school commitments and schedules, other outside activities and Scout obligations ceremony teams will typically provide ceremonies from early January to the end of March. Requests for ceremonies in the fall are very difficult to accommodate because most ceremony teams do not start meeting and rehearsing until October or November. The adult adviser for ceremonies and the youth ceremony chair will attempt to provide you with a team in the fall, but you should not count on a team before January.
The Quanasita Chapter of the Order of the Arrow, serving Del-Mi District, would be honored to help make your Webelos Scouts’ Arrow of Light and/or Crossover ceremonies especially memorable. Most Packs have these ceremonies performed at their Blue and Gold Banquet, but they can also be done at a Pack meeting or other event. Our goal is to serve your Pack and Scouting by delivering a quality performance.
Please be understanding that requesting a ceremony by the Order of the Arrow is not a guarantee that we will have a team available for you. Our ceremony teams are made of up of junior and high school students. Many of these young men do not yet drive and are dependent on parents to transport them and most of these young men are very active in Boy Scouts and other extracurricular activities. Additionally, most packs want to have these ceremonies during a very short time frame between January through March and also on the same weekends. There are times when a ceremony team is not available or we don’t have enough ceremony teams.
You are encouraged to Google “Crossover Ceremony," "Bridging Ceremony," and “Arrow of Light Ceremony” and search for a ceremony that adult leaders in your pack and adult leaders in the troops your Webelos are crossing over to may present to your Webelos. There are many wonderful ceremonies available to you.
We will do everything we can to provide you with a ceremony team. However, since our young men who do the ceremonies are volunteers and lead active lives we cannot guarantee you a team. However, we will advise you at least two weeks before your requested ceremony whether we have a ceremony team committed for your event.
If you have questions, please email or call the Quanasita Adviser, Joe Linzenich, at (317) 714-8376 or email@example.com.
