Home > Ordeals



The induction ceremony, called the Ordeal, is the first step toward full membership in the Order. During the experience, candidates maintain silence, receive small amounts of food, work on camp improvement projects, and sleep apart from other campers. The entire experience is designed to teach significant values. All candidates for membership must complete the Ordeal.


Ordeals are generally held at our Council camps (Lassen, Winton, NorCal), and Camp Cole which was a previous council property.
