The Spring Ordeal March 12-14
Congratulations upon your election as a candidate for the Order of the Arrow. You can take great pride in being selected by your fellow Scouts, but realize that you are now only a candidate for membership. A greater thrill awaits you when you become a member of the Order and are decorated with the Order of the Arrow sash. This happens when you have successfully completed the Ordeal.
Your next opportunity to participate in the Ordeal will be 12-14 March 2021 at Camp Barstow. To prepare for this event you should:
- Register to attend the Ordeal by clicking HERE.
- Pay the $50.00 ordeal fee online.
- Bring a copy of your current BSA Health and Medical Record to camp (parts A & B -- NO doctor signature required).
- Determine how you will get to and from camp. Plan to arrive at camp on Friday evening between 6:00 and 7:00 pm. Dinner is NOT provided Friday night, so eat before you arrive or bring a bag supper.
If you become ill just before the Ordeal, stay in bed. If you currently have any temporary physical or medical problem which could limit your participation, we strongly encourage you to wait until the problem passes. We will be happy to help you make alternative plans.
If you are unable to attend this Ordeal, there will be another opportunity in 12-15 August 2021 but only if it has been less than two years since your election. You will find an equipment list on the "Ordeal Candidate Letter"; please review it carefully. We look forward to your joining us in membership in the Order of the Arrow.

There will be a callout Friday night. All candidates who have been elected but have not yet been called-out are encouraged to attend the Summer Ordeal and SUPER Fellowship.
