Tschitanek Woakus mini-Ordeal
5-6 February 2021
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Order of the Arrow has extended the time for a candidate to complete their Ordeal from the usual 12 months from date of election to 24 months. This applies to all candidates elected after 1 February 2019.
Muscogee Lodge recognizes that some OA candidates may wish to complete their Ordeal as soon as possible. The Tschitanek Woakus Chapter of Muscogee Lodge is conducting a mini-Ordeal at Camp Barstow Friday evening & all day Saturday, 5-6 February 2021.
The health and safety of our members is our greatest concern. Our plans for the mini-Ordeal are in keeping with the best practices and recommendations of the BSA, Indian Waters Council, CDC and DHEC. One significant limitation is that each mini-Ordeal will only include a small number of candidates. Those considering a mini-Ordeal must not have any risk factors associated with COVID-19 and should have had no known exposure to anyone with COVID-19 within the past two weeks.

Thank you for your patience as we work through the safest and best way to offer Ordeal opportunities during this pandemic. The leadership of Muscogee Lodge has been working very hard and over an ever changing “landscape” of guidelines and considerations.
