Boy Scouts Micah D. Jordan and Jacob X. Trevino joined their Troop 17, Gering, Scoutmaster Matt Palomo at Camp Laramie Peak on June 1, 2019, after their selection to the Order of the Arrow.

Both Scouts completed the induction ceremony, called the Ordeal. This is the first step toward full membership in the Order.

During the selection process, candidates maintain silence, receive small amounts of food, work on camp improvement projects, and sleep apart from other campers.

The entire experience is designed to teach significant values of Scouting and to emphasis ideals of the Order.
