OA Ordeal Induction Weekend

Scouts who were elected into the Order of the Arrow (OA) must complete an Ordeal within one year, in order to become a member of Colonneh Lodge.  

Register for an Ordeal


The purpose of the Order of the Arrow, Boy Scouts of America’s National Honor Society, is to:

  • Recognize those who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives, and through that recognition, cause others to conduct themselves in a way that warrants similar recognition.
  • Promote camping, responsible outdoor adventure, and environmental stewardship as essential components of every Scout’s experience, in the unit, year-round, and in summer camp.
  • Develop leaders with the willingness, character, spirit and ability to advance the activities of their units, our brotherhood, Scouting, and ultimately our nation.
  • Crystallize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others.
