We are excited to be providing another Ordeal induction day during our Annual Ring Blitz work day April 30-May 1, 2021 at Camp Mitigwa. This year, we will be holding a joint event along with the Mid-Iowa Council’s camporee. Our event will go from Friday night to Saturday night, while those camping with their Troop will camp until Sunday.
What is Ring Blitz?
For members already in OA, Ring Blitz is a time where we can focus on things related to ceremonies at camp. The derecho left us some cleanup to do in our ceremony rings. We also have housekeeping things such as repairing tikis, making torches and more. The entirety of work projects will be focused on OA activities to make sure everything is ready for summer camp.
Spring Conclave, which takes place a couple of weeks later, involves getting the entire camp ready for summer camp.
Important Note: If you plan to work/eat with the Order of the Arrow during this weekend, you must register with the Mitigwa Lodge (OA) registration! You can still tent with your unit, but to have meals with the lodge, you need to be registered with the lodge.
We will have a maximum capacity of 60 Ordeal candidate spots open for the weekend. Other Arrowmen are welcome to attend as we will be spending a lot of time getting our ceremony ring and other tasks ready for Summer Camp.
Ordeal candidates are $65 and other members attending are $15. Please encourage Ordeal candidates to register soon as spots may fill up quickly.
We hope to see you there!
