The last ordeal induction weekend of the year is only a few weeks away. This will be the final chance for scouts elected for membership in our order to complete the ordeal. Please encourage the OA candidates from your units to attend the August Ordeal.

The members of the Aca Chapter will have a major role in the August Ordeal. We are looking for both youth and adults to serve in several leadership roles. We will also be working closely with members of Tahquitze and Wanakik Chapters to ensure the success of this Ordeal.

On August 2 from 7PM to 8PM we will be holding a web conference for an ordeal leadership meeting where we will be covering a walkthrough and planbook for the August Ordeal.

On Sunday, August 6, we will be doing a walkthrough at Camp Emerson with the camp ranger to cover the different work projects that will be completed at the Ordeal. In early August there will be a special training for Aca members whome wish to serve as Elenagomats.
