What to bring to an Ordeal? Simple - "The ten essentials", ground cloth, sleeping bag, uniform, and work gloves. The candidates may want other things for the second night, these can be locked in a vehicle until after the ordeal ceremony.

 

King, have your Elangamats break them into manageable groups, and go to different parts of camp where they can be spaced out away from each other. A night alone on your ground sheet under the stars is a key part of the ordeal.

150 Participants broke up into 8 Clans and 1 adult can.

 

Sleeping under the stars is something I was looking forward to, and it did not disappoint. And I will agree it wasn't "a campout" and I didnt need HALF of what I brought. I will learn one day.

You have the correct attitude; keep learning from your experiences, and keep improving things. What youth officers do you have, they should be central to all of this?

NONE!

 

Its been about 9 years since my troop has had any doing in OA. The river (Mississippi) has us separated from MOST of the council and the Chapter we are associated with meets a good distance from us. This is where I come in! To reconnect Crittenden County Scouts to OA and possible research an option of added a Chapter.
