What is the Ordeal

What is the Ordeal?

The Ordeal is a weekend experience in which those elected or selected learn about the customs and traditions of the Order of the Arrow and undertake a spiritual journey to discover the true meanings of leadership, service and the Brotherhood of Scouting. You might think that this sounds like a lot to do. It is, but we have faith that you can do it. This weekend will test not only your physical strength, but your inner strength as well.

What weekends can I go through my Ordeal?

The Lodge conducts weekends in the Spring and Fall during which you can go through your Ordeal. These are held at the Council’s camps.
