In a few short weeks, we encourage all our brothers to gather at Camp Crooked Creek and Camp Roy C. Manchester for our Summer Induction Weekends. These weekends are right after summer camp and we would like to see all of those who were called out attend one of these weekends. Along with these, we need all our members to be there to welcome our new brothers and help serve our camps, lodge, and council. The schedule of events can be found on the website, or clicking here. Registration begins at 7pm local time and the weekend concludes roughly 10am local time on Sunday. A packing list for those completing their Ordeal can also be found on the website here. The cost for the weekend is $20.00 for members, $50.00 for Ordeal Candidates and $40.00 for Brotherhood Candidates. If you are a FireCard member the weekend is free, or $20.00 with a FireCard and Brotherhood. Remember everyone needs to register no later than one week before the event to avoid the $5.00 late fee.
Work Project planning at both camps is currently underway. At the CCC Induction Weekend we are planning the construction of a 30+ft. bridge on the Seven Arrows Trail and a retaining wall at the Brotherhood Lodge among many projects. For those planning to attend this Ordeal, please bring water shoes and extra socks as well as chainsaws and protective gear because many trees have to be cleaned out of the ceremony ring. As always bring gloves and a water bottle.
In addition, there is a training weekend for elangomats and ceremonialists on Aug. 11th to the 13th. If interested in attending email Zach L. at the email listed above.
