The first step in becoming a member of the Order of the Arrow is to be elected by your unit. each year, every unit is allowed one election to select candidates to join the Order of the Arrow. Being elected does NOT make you a member, you must complete your Induction by going through your ordeal. Kawida Lodge hosts several Ordeal weekends throughout the year, check out the calendar to see when the next one you can attend is!
There are a few special Items you will need when you attend your Ordeal Ceremony. A complete packing list can be found on the packing list page of this website, or by selecting the icon for this paragraph. Be sure to bring everything on the packing list!
The induction ceremony, called the Ordeal, is the first step toward full membership in the Order. During the experience, candidates maintain silence, receive small amounts of food, work on camp improvement projects, and sleep apart from other campers. The entire experience is designed to teach significant values. All candidates for membership must complete the Ordeal.
