The Fall Induction weekend will be held on November 12, 2022 at Camp Barton. This event will be part virtual and part in person. On November 11th candidates will take part in a virtual pre-ordeal ceremony at their own home. Then on November 12th candidates and Lodge members will gather at 9AM for a day of cheerful service starting at Taughannock Falls State Park and finishing at Camp Barton. We will conclude the induction by 5 PM at Camp Barton. This is a great opportunity for very busy Scouts to finally join us.

On November 12, 2022 all candidates will report to the Taughannock Falls State Park (Main Parking Lot near the Lake Front) at 9 AM to help with the Lodges Adopt-A-Highway Program. The scouts will then be transported back to Camp Barton for remaining part of the Day. We will be holding the Ordeal Ceremony at approximately 3 PM.
