May Ordeal-Beaver Day Registration Information - REGISTRATION CLOSED
Updated: April 10, 2018

For the second year in a row, Beaver Days will be affected by the lack of a dining hall at Camp Grimes. The outside will be close to finished, but more work on the inside will still need to be done. Last year was the first time we ever faced the scenario of not having a dining hall, and this helped us a lot in planning for Beaver Days this year. Something you may notice is that the total cost for OA members and non-OA members seems low that is because, after the strenuous efforts made last year, it is not feasible to use the kitchen in Hornets Nest to cook for hundreds of people, therefore we will not be offering OA Cook Team made meals for all scouts. We hope you understand our reasoning to do this. 

With that being said, our Cook Team will only be preparing meals for Ordeal candidates (Saturday Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) and for Brotherhood candidates (Saturday dinner only), which explains the cost associated with them. They are the only people being fed by our Cook Team which means everyone else has to bring their own food for the weekend. 

We look forward to enjoying Beaver Days with as many of our Lodge and Council brothers to help prepare Camp Grimes for the 2018 Summer Camp season. If you have a question regarding this decision, please feel free to email Lodge Chief Casey Smith at

Thank you!
