OA Wihinipa Hinsa Winter Ordeal 2018


The Wihinipa Hinsa Lodge #113 holds its Winter Ordeal at Camp Karankawa in 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 calling-out ceremony will be conducted prior to the 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.


TIME: Check-in Friday from 6-8 p.m., Check-out Sunday from 10-11 a.m. (Depending when clean-up is done.)

DATE: January 12-14, 2018

COST: $10 per Elangomat

PLACE: Camp Karankawa, 3249 Fm 1459 Rd, Sweeny, TX 77480

CONTACT: Ricky Torres at

REGISTER BY:  January 7, 2018 (There will be no Elangomat registrations accepted after that date.)


Elangomats must be Brotherhood members who are willing to serve in the following capacities:

1) 2 Brotherhood members will serve together as Elangomats per Clan (8-10 Ordeal Candidates)

2) These Elangomats will oversee the Ordeal of their Clan.

3) Each Elangomat will follow up with each Ordeal member after the Ordeal Ceremony to help guide the Ordeal members to their Brotherhood level.

This will serve as continuity to the Ordeal members and will build the Lodge membership and participation.
