Miwok Lodge visits Troops throughout the Council for a variety of reasons:
We encourage each Troop to have an OA Unit Visitation at least once per year. Scouts that are nominated to join the Order of the Arrow by their Troop must go through the OA Ordeal before the end of that calendar year, or they must be nominated again the next year.
