2016 Spring Ordeal

The Spring Ordeal will take place on May 13-15, 2016.  Check-in for the function will be from 5:00-7:30 pm. Help set the example for our OA candidates and be in Full Field Uniform (Class A and Sash) for Check-in.

For Saturday, bring work clothes, work gloves and a water bottle. It will be a busy day so everyone needs to stay hydrated. Camp is limited on equipment for these projects so if you have equipment that will help us get these projects completed please bring these items with you for the weekend. Please label these tools with your name so we know which tools are property of camp and which ones are your personal tools. We have a special need for flatbed trailers, pressure washers, weed-eaters, and general trail pruning tools. If you require any medical accommodations please note them on the back of the registration form.

We will do what we can to provide for special dietary restrictions, however please “Be Prepared” to bring some items yourself should your diet require.


Please spread the word because this Ordeal is essential to hosting an outstanding summer camp. On that note, plan to come out and join us on Thursday nights at summer camp also, as we celebrate the 85th anniversary of camp.
