Order of the Arrow | Induction

Order of the Arrow | Induction
40.00

When a Scout is elected to become a member of the Order of the Arrow, he is not an official member until he completes an "Ordeal" which is an overnight campout where he will sleep out under the stars and perform unselfish service with meager food and without talking to others. This tradition is based on the Delaware Indians who would send young braves out by themselves to serve nature and live off the land until they could return to the tribe and be recognized as having grown closer to nature and ready to become members of the brotherhood of tribal leaders. Please register below for the Ordeal of your choice in the Registration area of this website. All BSA safety guidelines are followed during the Ordeal, and there is no hazing or forbidden activities taking place during the Induction Weekend.

Check In - Plan on checking in at the Induction site between 6:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. of the date of the Ordeal - usually this will be a Friday.

Pick Up - You will be finished about 5:30-6:00 p.m. the next evening (Saturday for most Ordeals).

Agenda

The Ordeal will consist of a special campfire on Friday night. You will be given a place to sleep and placed on silence for the 24 hour period. The next day you will be involved in service in and around the Induction site. It will be service that needs to be done at the camp or for the civic organization where we are holding the Ordeal. You will be on silence during this period of time. Meals will be provided and you are not allowed to bring any food. If you need special foods or have special medical needs during the Induction Weekend, please note that on your medical form and email the Lodge Adviser right away so your personal needs can be evaluated prior to showing up for the Ordeal. At the conclusion of the Ordeal you will attend a final campfire where your sash will be presented and you will be formally inducted as an Ordeal member of the Order of the Arrow. There will be no hazing or similar activities at the Induction Weekend. It is a time for you to reflect on your commitment to Scouting and to make some personal commitments.

Registration

Online Registration is open until about 2 days before each Induction Weekend. At the door registrations are discouraged, but can be allowed at the discretion of the Lodge Adviser (an additional fee will be charged for at the door registrations).
