Mitigwa Lodge is excited to offer another weekend for our candidates to undergo their Ordeal! Our second Fall Induction Weekend will take place October 23-24, 2020 at beautiful Camp Mitigwa. The induction event has been modified to allow us to welcome new candidates while maintaining social distancing. Because of this, there will be no formal programming at the event other than our Ordeal ceremonies. Current OA members who want to attend will be giving service as well to the camp– and we know there is a lot that can be done!
Registration will open at 11:00am on October 5, 2020 and close at 11:59pm on 10/20/20. The registration link is https://scoutingevent.com/177-OAinduction2# and will also be posted on the council website under Events and OA, as well as on Facebook. There can be no walk-ins or at-event registrations. All attendees must be pre-registered. No exceptions. Upon arrival, please report to Bear Creek Lodge instead of the Deere Center. Additional emails and reminders will be sent until the event.
Candidates will be receiving a letter detailing what they need to bring and basic information. Current OA members should bring a tent to sleep in Friday night and the usual camping gear as there are limited indoor facilities available and are reserved for those with medical needs.
Because of COVID-19 and ceremony capacity restrictions, this event will be limited to 70 candidates. There is no limit on regular attendees. The next opportunity for completing an induction will be in Spring 2021.
