2023 Spring Conference – Gardner Dam
The first service weekends for the Lodge in 2023. Here Ordeal candidates will complete their Ordeal and join our brotherhood, as well as Ordeal members sealing their membership by becoming Brotherhood members. Those who were selected to be Vigil honor members will also hold their vigil on these weekends. For those not doing their Ordeal, the weekend will be filled with service projects to get our camps ready for the summer, as well as fellowship for everyone.
Ordeal candidates need to arrive at camp no later then 7:30 PM on Friday evening. The conclusion of the Ordeal, including flap and book distribution, will not be until Sunday morning.
Leaving camp during the weekend is prohibited. If any youth member needs to leave camp for any reason, they must sign out and be picked up by a parent or guardian OR have a signed permission slip from their parents or guardian stating why they are leaving and who has permission to pick them up. Thank you for your help with this safety issue.
All Scouts under 18 years old must have a signed permission slip to attend this event.
Everyone must bring a valid BSA Medical Form Parts A and B.
Suggested items to bring for the weekend include: Scout uniform, tent, sleeping bag, ground cloth, work clothes and gloves (items will get dirty), rain gear, underwear, socks, toiletries, towel, carving knife, money for trading post, insect repellent, flashlight, health history form and any needed medications.
