Camp Falling Rock
To start our Ordeal season off we are going to Camp Falling Rock May 5th – 7th.
Jon is working hard to make sure we have people to fill in as Elangomats and for Ritual team, but we cannot do this alone, so we need your help to make sure this event goes off without a hitch.
After all of the hard work and ceremonies on Saturday, we will be having fellowship time in the evening. Then on Sunday, we will need your help to clean up the camp.
We hope to see each and everyone one of you.

Tecumseh Lodge is Going to the Summit!
June 9 th – June 15 th 2023
The New River Experience Overview
This is a 50-mile paddle trek on the New River. You will navigate the upper portion of the river in inflatable kayaks (one or two-man) called “duckies”. This portion of the river includes Class I to III rapids. The final whitewater day in the Lower Canyon is a rafting experience and includes Class III to IV rapids. Crews camp along the river through the New River Gorge. A gear boat (raft) accompanies the group to transport gear and food.
The New River cuts deep into the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. Its long history spans the hunting and foraging of Native Americans, the fur trapping of early frontiersman, and the raw strength and determination of the coal miners who sought to tame its rugged beauty. More recently, outdoor enthusiasts have flocked to the New River to enjoy a myriad of outdoor adventures and admire the natural beauty of the New River Gorge. The New River Gorge boasts outstanding whitewater rapids (Class I to IV), extensive world-class climbing opportunities, fishing, hiking, mountain biking and more.
But it is more than just an adventure destination; it is an important ecosystem that contains diverse wildlife habitats, continuous forest systems, and diverse plant life. Visitors experience nature up close.
The New River Gorge is culturally significant as a reminder of our national Coal Heritage. At one time, the Gorge was dotted with small coal camps and towns. Visit their remnants today and come to understand the strength and character of the men and women whose hard work and determination helped shape our country.
We invite you to come enjoy a river voyage through the historically, culturally, ecologically significant New River Gorge. Paddle, camp, fish, and enjoy all that it has to offer individuals willing to match their mettle against one of the world’s rugged natural wonders.
Spots on the Trek are Limited and will be filled on a first come first served basis. Contact Rob Fanska (rob_fanska@hotmail.com/850-529-6724) to reserve your spot today. The estimated cost for this adventure is $1000 which will include travel, Trek fees and shirts.
