An OA Ordeal is a unique Scouting experience. The event challenges a candidate physically, spiritually, and mentally. It provides the candidate a time to reflect on how brotherhood, cheerfulness, and service will direct the candidate’s life.
Check-in begins at 7:00 PM on Friday. The Ordeal experience will end at approximately 4:00 PM on Saturday. New members are invited to join the fellowship activities (including games, service opportunities, and training) that are planned throughout the weekend and ending at 9:00 AM on Sunday. Food is provided throughout the weekend to registered participants. Participants will be camping.
You can find a letter from the Lodge Chief giving more details on what to expect and bring to the event. The letter may be found here: https://wp-assets.netopalis.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/2022-Candidate-Letter.pdf
Each participant is required to bring a copy of a current BSA medical form, Parts A & B to check-in.
