INDUCTION WEEKENDS

The Induction Weekend is the first step toward full membership in the Order of the Arrow (OA). The entire experience is designed to teach significant values. All candidates for membership are required to complete the Induction Weekend within eighteen months of their election or nomination. 

The Tiwahe Lodge 2024 Induction Weekend Dates are:

  • 19-20 April at Mataguay Scout Ranch
  • 31 May-1 June at Mataguay Scout Ranch
  • 6-7 September at Camp Balboa

Registration is now open!

REGISTRATION

Pre-registration is required for all members, at all events, including candidates. This helps us with meal planning and to ensure that there are enough materials for all new participants. The event cost is $65.00 for candidates and includes the event fee, an Ordeal Sash, a membership flap, and a Brotherhood Sash which can be earned 6 months after being inducted into the Order of the Arrow.

WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING

Pack for this event like any weekend camping trip. Bring a tent, sleeping gear, rain gear, full uniform for your induction ceremony and work clothes for service projects during the weekend. You do not need any cooking gear as all meals are provided during the weekend. Please remember to stop for food as you head to camp, as dinner will not be served Friday evening.

WHAT COMES AFTER?

Attend your monthly Chapter meetings to learn more about the Order and how you can best serve your Troop, District, and Council. After 6 months of active membership in the Order, an Ordeal member can advance to Brotherhood membership.
