2020 Order of the Arrow Virtual/Remote Induction (Ordeal) Weekends

Ahoalan-Nachpikin, the Order of the lodge of the Chickasaw Council, is excited to announce its first-ever virtual/remote Induction (Ordeal) weekends! In an effort to ensure the health and safety of all our stakeholders, the lodge leadership has decided to host the Ordeal using the Zoom platform and remote completion of the Ordeal tests for the Scouts and Scouters elected and selected as candidates for Order of the Arrow membership. 

There are three weekends on which candidates may participate in the virtual/remote Ordeal: 

  1. September 11-12
  2. September 18-19
  3. September 25-26

Candidates should plan to join the first ceremony of the weekend on the Friday night of the session selected at 8:30 p.m. Then, candidates will independently (or in small groups) complete the Ordeal before joining the final ceremony at 5:00 p.m. on the Saturday night of the selected session. Candidates will need to commit the entire time between the Friday night ceremony and the Saturday night ceremony to the Ordeal (please select a weekend on which there are no conflicts). 

A parent/guardian, other family member, or troop leader should plan to facilitate the Ordeal for the Scout or adult candidate(s). The lodge will host an information session about facilitating the virtual Ordeal on Tuesday, September 8, 2020, at 7:30 p.m. (the Zoom information will be shared with registrants).
