Bay Area CouncilWINTER ORDEAL 2019

OA Wihinipa Hinsa Winter Ordeal 2019

The Wihinipa Hinsa Lodge #113 holds a Winter Ordeal at Camp Karankawa every January. The induction ceremony into the Order of the Arrow, called the Ordeal, is the first step toward full membership. During the experience, candidates maintain complete silence, receive small amounts of food, work on camp improvement projects, and are required to sleep alone the first night, apart from other campers, which teaches significant values. The Ordeal will challenge you, help you discover more about yourself, and strengthen you as a Scout.  A Call-Out ceremony will be performed prior to Ordeal for those Scouts that require one. You are only candidates at this point. You must complete the Ordeal weekend to become official members of the Order of the Arrow.
