  • OA Ordeal complete

    I was a little disappointed that the OA Call-out did not happen at the Spring Camporee. Still haven't heard the real reason. But my son and another scout from the troop made it through the Ordeal and my son is excited about being a member of OA. I was also selected by our SM to join OA this year. I opted to let my son go through his Ordeal without me being around. I think it was a good decision. He likes to tell me that he can't discuss what went on at the Ordeal, even when I asked if it rained at all Saturday night (weather was perfect at Camp Friedlander). Now he plans to work staff at my Ordeal in July. I am looking forward to it (and a bit curious).

    I took my scouts who were elected to a neighboring districts camporee for call out. There ordeal is in a couple of weeks.

    I think letting your son attend without you was an excellent choice. Just attend and let it happen......The ordeal is a shadow of itself, like many things in scouting, but it still has the spirit of the event.
