Ceremonial Teams

Ceremonies are a central part of the traditions of the OA. The four major ceremonies are Preordeal, Ordeal, Brotherhood, and Vigil. These ceremonies have remained carefully guarded secrets, which are revealed to Scouts and scouters who have earned the honor.

Gravois Trail is always in need of Ordeal and Brotherhood teams. If you are interested in Ceremonial teams please contact one of the chapter officers or the Ceremonial team chairman.
