The Wolverine Lodge
Kishahtek lodge was created with the its name meaning northern lights in Lenne Lenape. Our totem is the wolverine and the northern lights.
The Order of the Arrow was founded upon the principles of brotherhood, cheerfulness, and service. These principles form the foundation for the Obligation of the Order. This is not an easy pledge to fulfill, for there are few who live a life of cheerful service in our world. For some, the Order will be like a supernova, shining brilliantly for a brief time and soon crumbling to ashes. For others, the Order will kindle a flame or brotherhood, brighter than a thousand suns, lasting throughout eternity.
The mission of the lodge is to achieve the purpose of the Order of the Arrow as an integral part of the Boy Scouts of America in the council through positive youth leadership under the guidance of selected capable adults.
"From the beginning it has been our hope that the Order would serve a useful purpose in causing the Scout Promise and Law to spring into action, especially in the Scout camps in all parts of our nation. We are still dedicated to this high purpose."
E. Urner Goodman,
"He who serves his fellow scouts is of all of fellows, greatest"

You were selected for this order not for what you have done but for what you are expected to do in the future
The steps required to complete the Ordeal membership are defined clearly. To become a candidate for membership in the Order, a youth must be at least a First Class Scout, and spend at least 15 days and nights camping in a two year period (six days must be spent at a long-term camp). Once a person has been elected to the Order of the Arrow by unit members, he or she is formally recognized as a candidate. This is done at a call-out ceremony during the summer camp season, each week at family night. The candidate then is invited to attend a lodge conclave to take part in a brief pre-Ordeal ceremony, and then an actual Ordeal (series of tests) to prove sincere dedication to the principles of the Order of the Arrow. Finally, if qualified, the candidate is accepted as a member in a colorful ceremony.
The completion of the Ordeal sets members on the start of an exciting adventure. After at least 10 months of active service, the Arrowman will be eligible to seal their membership in the Brotherhood ceremony. The Ordeal introduces the mysteries of the Order. Now, during Ordeal member's service, they have ample opportunity to increase their knowledge of the Arrow and to make it work for them.
The Vigil Honor is a high mark of distinction and recognition reserved for those Arrowmen who, by reason of exceptional service, personal effort, and unselfish interest, have made distinguished contributions beyond the immediate responsibilities in their lodge, the Order of the Arrow, Scouting and their Scout camp. To be eligible for the Vigil Honor, an Arrowman must be active for at least two full years as a Brotherhood member, and his dues must be current. Each June, the Vigil Honor members of the Lodge meet to select candidates who have given exceptional service to the Order for the Vigil Honor. The new candidates are tapped out at the annual Spring Ordeal and stand their Vigil in at Fall Fellowship. They are then recognized at the Winter Banquet.
