The first and third weekends of June will be our first induction weekends at Camp William Hinds.

Those members that were nominated during the winter elections will have the opportunity to join the lodge through the ordeal process. Those candidates should have received directions to register for 1 of 3 ordeals via post (if you have not received that letter, reach out to the lodge advisor, see contact page).

Current members should participate as organizers which can be guides, cooks, prep teams, and ceremonialists. Saturday morning will be work projects day where we will be fulfilling the 2016 national service grant that will allow us to install outriggers on the tent platforms.

If you did your ordeal 10 months ago you are eligible to seal your membership and undergo the challenges of brotherhood.

Time, cost and schedules can be viewed on our Facebook events

Those who have only attended an ordeal once at their induction are encouraged to ask for more information from existing members -their role at an ordeal is a bit different. Cabins and 4 meals will be offered.

Fittingly themed – “Embrace Tomorrow” – the council of chiefs is looking forward to providing you a unique and innovative program like never seen before.
