2020 Ordeal Weekends
An Ordeal weekend is where candidates who were elected by their Scout BSA Troop, Crew or Ship to 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.
Upon arrival to Broad Creek Scout Reservation (address and directions below), please report
to the camp where your Ordeal is being held (see below).  
**If you have special medical conditions, dietary needs, or religious concerns, please contact the Lodge at least 2-weeks prior to the Ordeal.
