Congratulations on your election to the Order of the Arrow, Scouting's National Honor Society! Being elected by the Scouts in your troop is a great honor, and we look forward to your participation in our Lodge. To become a member of the Order of the Arrow, you must complete the induction process called the Ordeal. You may attend either of our scheduled induction weekends, but you can help us by pre-registering below.
The early-bird cost for your induction weekend is $50. One week prior to the event, the full cost will be $70. Early Bird Registration for the Winter Induction Weekend ends on January 27, 2023. This fee pays for the cost of the induction weekend, your Order of the Arrow sash, an Order of the Arrow handbook, a Coosa Lodge flap, and your lodge dues for 2023.
You will receive an e-mail confirmation receipt of your pre-registration fee, so please type your email address accurately. Please save and print out the confirmation email as proof of registration. You must also bring parts A & B of BSA medical form available by clicking on the link below:
The Ordeal begins promptly at 8 PM on Friday evening and concludes at 10 AM Sunday morning. Registration and check-in will open at 6 PM on Friday and will close by 12am on Saturday morning. If you have academic or other conflicts on Friday night, please email email@example.com and we will try to accommodate you. Information on what to bring, maps to camp, and other information can be found on our website: https://coosa50.squarespace.com/
Please remember that you have 12 months from the date of your election to complete your Ordeal. If you don't complete the Ordeal within that timeframe, national Order of the Arrow policy states that you must be re-elected by your unit.
