Ordeal is a time for Ordeal Candidates, just elected and called out, to go through their ordeal. Ordeal Candidates have one year from their election to go through Ordeal.

You should plan to arrive no later than 7:00 pm CDT and stay through orientation on Sunday morning.


After 10 months or more as an Ordeal member, you are eligible to seal your membership in the Order by taking the next step.  This step consists of five brotherhood challenges.

Brotherhood Candidates, this link is used to study for the challenges.


You may also use the national OA website to help you gain an understanding of Brotherhood membership:


You will submit your letter, which is one of the challenges, when you check-in at Ordeal weekend.


For all other Arrowmen it is a time of fellowship, service, and fun at Skymont Scout Reservation.
