Yes! They are adults (not a boy scout troop) and are responsible for their actions.

However, they did say it was an initiation ceremony and it would not be considered unusual for alumni to attend, participate in or conduct such an event - if it were in fact an actual official initiation ritual of the fraternity - which I am betting that this particular outdoor tree cutting event was not.

Not saying that this was what was going on, but cutting down trees in the middle of nowhere is reminiscent of what used to be called a pledge rally.
