Order of the Arrow Spring Induction Weekend – June 4-6
The induction weekend (Ordeal) is the cornerstone of the Order of the Arrow experience.  Every current and past member of the OA has participated in an induction weekend.  Time will be spent in cheerful service to our camp.  This weekend will be used for each candidate to reflect upon one’s time in Scouting and for them to consider what they will do going forward.  Every induction weekend contains three key parts; taking a vow of silence, eating scant food, and spending a night away from others.  All components of this weekend adhere to The Guide to Safe Scouting and are supervised by trained and qualified adults.  To find out more about the weekend and view our candidate guide, visit the Kitten Lodge website at kittanlodge364.org.
