Camps, Oases, and Lodges
The terms Camp (or sometimes Encampment), Oasis, and Lodge simply refer to the three categories of O.T.O. local bodies. Camps tend to be smallest and generally do not perform initiations. Oases are larger and initiate through III°. Lodges are larger still and initiate through IV°/P∴I∴. There are some exceptions to this pattern, but it holds more often than not.
The Electoral College of U.S. Grand Lodge encourages the development of new local bodies in unserved areas of the country. Its “Local Organizers” (formerly known as “Camps in Formation”) program recognizes individuals who are attempting to organize such bodies. Other prospective members in such areas may wish to contact the organizers to assist in the Camp formation process. The E.C. maintains a list of current Local Organizers and their locations.
