October 1 @ 6:00 pm - October 3 @ 10:00 am
Takhonek Lodge’s Fall Ordeal & Brotherhood Weekend will be held at Camp Arrowhead on October 1-3, 2021. Those who have been elected into the Order of the Arrow in the last 12 months have an opportunity to complete their Ordeal. If you have been an Ordeal member for 6 months or longer there is no better time to seal your membership in Brotherhood, then this event.
It is important that you pre-register by September 20, at 11:59 pm to get the discounted fees for Ordeal and Brotherhood. After online registration closes, you must call the Wehrle Service Center to pre-register. Registrations after September 20th will be charged a $15 late fee.
The weekend begins Friday night at 6 pm. When you arrive at Camp Arrowhead please turn right at the entrance and park in the lot by the lake. Then walk to the dining hall for registration. All Camping will be in tents in the sites below the parking lot so there is no need to carry your equipment to the dining hall. All in attendance should bring with them a copy of their current BSA health form. Everyone will need to keep this in their left front pocket during the weekend. Those attending for their Ordeal must present their health form during the check in process. Please bring your class A uniform with you, but you do not need to wear it until Saturday.
Plan to eat dinner before you arrive; we will have a Cracker Barrel around 9:00 pm. We encourage everyone to be at camp no later than 7:30 pm. We have some fun activities planned you don’t want to miss out on.
Here’s a quick list of items you may want to bring with you:
Class A uniform
Class B uniform for leisure and work projects
Medical Form (Part A&B)
Good walking shoes that are appropriate for working
Work clothing and gloves
Gear appropriate for the weather, remember it is a camp
Money to purchase items at the trading post
Flashlight (new batteries)
Tent camping equipment
Items you will need to bring on the first night of your ordeal are a change of clothes, sleeping bag, tarp, water bottle, work gloves, and health form. Your field uniform (Class A) will also be required for this weekend, but please do not wear your uniform on the first night.
On your second night you will need your regular camping supplies such as a tent, flashlight, etc.
