An Ordeal weekend is where candidates who were elected by their Troop or Team become Ordeal members in the Order of the Arrow. Each Chapter hosts a Lodge Ordeal Weekend throughout the calendar year. Elected candidates may attend the weekend hosted by their local Chapter or any other weekend during the year.
IMPORTANT: An elected candidate is eligible to take their Ordeal for a one-year period after being elected. If they do not complete the Ordeal in that time, they must be re-elected.
