My Order of the Arrow chapter is doing something a little different at
this year's Fall Camporee, and I want to know if anyone else does this.
It seems that OA members are being invited (encouraged?) to camp as a
separate group (instead of camping with their respective troops) at the
camporee. I feel a little uncomfortable with this. I thought one of the
purposes of the OA was service to the unit, and I don't see how this is
accpmplished if they're not staying with the unit. Also, I think the idea
has traces of elitism.
Am I off base here?
