What is an Ordeal?
   "The induction process, called the Ordeal, is the first step toward full membership in the Order. Upon completion of the Ordeal and its ceremony, the member is expected to strengthen his involvement in the unit and encourage Scout camping."


Join us in the National Honor Society for Boy Scouts, also known as the Order of the Arrow! If your unit has not conducted an election and wishes to, please reach out to your district executive for more information on how to make this happen for your troop, crew, or ship!



For Ordeal Candidates, please view the Ordeal Candidate Information page for what you'll need!

Earn your Brotherhood!

Did you do your Ordeal in 2022?  If so, then you are eligible to seal your membership in the Lodge by earning your Brotherhood!  See the Brotherhood Candidate Information page for more information.
