May Ordeal was a success!

by Chris Brightwell on May 17, 2016

Our first Ordeal of 2016 is in the books! We were able to do a lot of work to help Camp Sequoyah get ready for the summer. Candidates were able to clean up the water front, finish clearing trees from the dam, and do some much-needed trail maintenance. We inducted 62 new Ordeal members and 7 new Brotherhood members.
