Fellow Arrowmen of Troop 250,
You are invited to join your OA Brothers for the Summer Ordeal & Fellowship:
August 14-16, 2020
Location: Camp Old Indian (601 Callahan Mountain Road, Travelers Rest)
Registration link: https://scoutingevent.com/549-38886
Due to the current situation, carpooling will NOT be arranged unfortunately. Please plan your own transportation to and from camp.
Don’t forget to pay your Lodge Dues as well if this is the first OA event you are attending in 2020 (unless you are going through your Ordeal, in which case your dues are waived for the current year.)
If you have been tapped out at summer camp this year, you may now join the Order of the Arrow. To become an Arrowman, you can complete your Ordeal with Skyuka Lodge during this event. All candidates for membership must complete the Ordeal, you are not an Arrowman until then.
If you were called out at Summer Camp in 2019 but have not completed your Ordeal yet, temporary National rules now give you until April 2021 to complete your Ordeal without being re-elected. That being said, I highly recommend that you attend the upcoming Summer Ordeal if you can.
For more information on how to prepare for your Ordeal:
After 6 months of service as an Ordeal member and fulfilling certain requirements you may take part in the Brotherhood conversion, which places further emphasis on the ideals of Scouting and the Order. Completion of this ceremony signifies full membership in the Order. Here is the checklist to prepare for the Brotherhood requirements:
