The Order of the Arrow is Scouting’s National Honor Society
I am a candidate, what do I need to bring for my Ordeal weekend?
You should plan to arrive at Camp Durant no later than about 6 p.m. on the Friday evening of your Ordeal weekend. No Friday evening meal will be served, so plan to eat well before you arrive. The weekend activities will last until around 9:30 a.m. on Sunday morning (when a brief nondenominational chapel service will be held).
Pack for this weekend as you would for any troop outing: bring sleeping gear, a tent, flashlight, toiletries, medication and any other necessities. One exception from the standard camping equipment is that of cooking or eating gear – these will not be needed, as all meals (Saturday breakfast through Sunday breakfast) will be provided. As with all Scouting functions, you should bring your complete (“Class A”) Scout uniform. However, as you will spend much of Saturday performing service for the council camp, you should bring a change of work clothes (older clothes that can get dirty), including work gloves. cost for events
The Ordeal registration and event fee is $55.00 (checks are made out to “Occoneechee Lodge 104“ – this fee includes insurance, an event patch, four meals plus a cracker-barrel, the current lodge OA dues, an Order of the Arrow handbook, an Ordeal sash, and an Ordeal lodge flap. You must also bring a completed copy of the Health History/Authorization form.
