Join us for our first ever Virtual Induction event!

October 9-10

We are working hard to create an experience that is both meaningful and creative to welcome our Candidates into the Order of the Arrow.  Activities will be done in your area with guidance from our Arrowmen both in person and via a virtual platform that will allow our Candidates to experience a traditional Ordeal in less than traditional times.

Please register now so that you can receive your packet timely to make your experience complete.  Candidates will be expected to follow guidelines that are self-regulated on Friday evening, attend virtual ceremonies on both Friday and Saturday nights (phones work for our platform if no computer access - we will work with candidates with wifi issues on a one to one basis), and complete a task in their local areas on Saturday. Please contact us at if you have any concerns about being able to fulfill any of the requirements.  We will work with you and make this happen!  It is important to our lodge to be able to welcome the members that were elected in 2020.  You will not be on your own!  An Elangomat from your own Troop or your District will be there on Saturday to help guide you through the process.  

Be on the lookout for more information concerning procedures and expectations as we will be continually updating this page with more resources to make your Ordeal experience ideal and welcoming you into the Order of the Arrow.

Instructions for the Ordeal Registration


If you have recently been elected to the Order of the Arrow then you are considered a Ordeal Candidate. The cost for the ordeal is $45 which covers the OA sash, OA Pocket flap, Handbook, one years dues, etc.

A Member is a person who has already gone through an Ordeal. While there is no member fee for this event, we need all of our Arrowmen to participate as our Candidates need your support.  Please make sure to register and that your 2020 dues are paid in full to participate. 

While this ordeal will not be held in one centralized location, please bring your MEDICAL RELEASE to your Saturday ordeal local.  In order to provide Emergency Health Services it is essential that everyone carry a copy of their BSA Annual Health and Medical Record & Release Form (Parts A and B) to the event.  While we do not anticipate any issues, a Scout is always prepared.    

Please note that while you can register after Monday, October 5th at 11:55 pm, we need to mail your candidate a welcome package and it needs time to arrive.  If you register after the 5th, you will need to be able to pick up your package at the Council office (we can drop outside the door even with the office closed) so plan accordingly.
