Welcome to the Wolf Clan!
We are very excited to welcome you into our chapter. We represent the Southbounder District of the Blue Ridge Council. Remember, we want you to stay involved, continue to serve your troop, and to work to seal your membership. Here at Ani-Waya, we value your interest and we want to make the OA the best scouting experience you have ever had. Being a new Ordeal member, you will experience many new things. Feel free to contact your Chapter Chief if you have any questions. We meet at Simpsonville United Methodist Church on the second Thursday of each month at 7:00pm.
Ani-Waya when translated means the Wolf Clan.
