The induction weekend (ordeal) is the cornerstone of the Order of the Arrow experience. Every current and past member of the OA has participated in an induction weekend. Time will be spent in cheerful service preparing camp for the summer season. This weekend will be used for each candidate to reflect upon one’s time in Scouting and for them to consider what they will do going forward. Every induction weekend contains three key parts; taking a vow of silence, eating scant food, and spending a night away fromothers. All components of this weekend adhere to The Guide to Safe Scouting and are supervised by trained and qualified adults. To find outmore about the weekend, view our candidate guide, and complete online event registration by visiting our website at
