Order of the Arrow
Cody Seiser, a three-year member of Boy Scouts Troop 17, was elected by his peers to take part in the Order of the Arrow. The inducton ceremony, called the Ordeal, is the first step toward full membership in the Order. During the experience, candidates maintain silence, receive small amounts of food, work on camp improvements and sleep apart from other campers. The entire experience is designed to teach significant values. All candidates for membership must complete the Ordeal. Seiser is a life scout, working towards his Eagle Scout rank.
