Invitations Sent to OA Candidates
Ajapeu Lodge 2 emailed invitations to attend an Ordeal weekend to youth and adults who were elected or nominated by their troops as Candidates for the Order of the Arrow. The emails were sent out the week of March 18.
In order to become a member in the Order of the Arrow, all Candidates are required to participate in one of 3 Ordeal weekends offered by Ajapeu Lodge 2. The 2018 Ordeal weekend dates are: April 13-15, May 18-20, and August 17-19. The emails included information about how to register, what and how to pack for the weekend and other basic information about the Ordeal weekend.
You can register by selecting any of the links on the right side of this page.
Unfortunately, we did not receive contact information for some Candidates so if you were elected (or nominated as an adult) as a Candidate and did not receive an email invitation, please contact your Scoutmaster immediately and he/she will get in touch with us so that we can send you your invitation and information packet. The invitations were sent in a mass email, so you should also check your spam and junk folders as we have found that some providers filter out our mass emails.
We strongly encourage you to sign up for the April and May weekends because you will then be able to attend Conclave with us in June, NOAC in August and you can participate in the OA day activities at your summer camp. Conclave is the annual camporee weekend for the OA members in the 11 Lodges in our Section and NOAC is the national jamboree for the Order of the Arrow.
These are the only 3 opportunities you will have to complete your Induction into the Order of the Arrow. Your candidacy expires after the August weekend, so if you do not attend one of theses 3 weekends, you will have to be eligible and elected (or nominated) again next year.
