The Encampment is subordinate to the Odd Fellow Lodges. It is an entity that has three degrees one must have before obtaining the highest degree of an Odd Fellow which is the Patriarch Militant Degree. Our goals are to help improve and elevate the character of man and base our motto of Faith, Hope and Charity. We encourage our Odd Fellow members who have recieved the 3rd Degree in the Odd Fellow Lodge to petition the local Encampment for membership.
