The cost will be $40.00 for the weekend. This may seem a bit expensive, but it covers the cost of all meals, the OA handbook, sash, pocket flap, and a year of dues. Please make all checks payable to the “KATAHDIN AREA COUNCIL” or “KAC”. Please note that the spring Induction weekend is PRE-REGISTRATION ONLY.
For the weekend you will need a copy of your candidate registration form, class 2 medical form, sleeping bag, ground cloth, a complete Scout uniform, work clothes, gloves, a Scout’s outdoor essentials, bug dope, an extra smaller pack, and extra clothes. Please keep in mind the radical Maine weather climate; in other words, BE PREPARED and dress appropriately to endure the elements. PLEASE DO NOT BRING FOOD. All medications must be checked at the registration station upon arrival. Registration will be between 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM on Friday night. It is important that you register on time and earlier is better.
After you are inducted in to the Order of the Arrow you will be eligible to purchase OA items at the OA store on Saturday evening. You should bring money if you would like to buy additional patches or other OA items. An OA orientation session will be held Sunday morning at all induction weekends. The weekend will complete at 11:00 am, and you may check out following the orientation. Please have your ride ready to pick you up at that time. It is important that you stay for the entire weekend.
