Welcome to the 2020 OA Induction Weekend! While this Ordeal weekend may be structured a little differently than normal, we are committed to ensuring that you as a candidate recieve a memorable, and meaningful experience. To do that we have two components to completing the Ordeal:

At Home: Virtual pre-ordeal gathering / sleeping outside:

On Friday at 8:00, we will gather on zoom for a pre-ordeal opening. This will include some introductions, q/a, a parent meeting, and finally a pre-ordeal ceremony. At the conclusion of the ceremony, if we were in person, we would be spending the night under sleeping under the stars. As this is one of the principle components of the Ordeal, please plan to sleep outside under the stars on Friday evening at home. 

In Person:

On Saturday at 8:30AM we will gather at the pavillion at Moses Scout Reservation for a day of service projects around camp, followed by a big ceremony, and some safe games and activities. 

Participation in BOTH At Home and In Person components is required in order to complete your induction become an Arrowmen

More information will be emailed out prior to the event after you have registered.
