Tutelo Lodge Inductions (Ordeals)

Boy Scouts who were elected into the Order of the Arrow (OA) by their troop must complete an Ordeal (induction weekend) within one year in order to become a member of Tutelo Lodge. If a candidate does not attend an Ordeal within one year, then the candidate must be re-elected by their unit. A candidate from a Blue Ridge Mountains Council troop can only complete his Ordeal in Tutelo Lodge. Tutelo Lodge holds multiple Ordeals each year. Check the lodge calendar for exact dates, locations, and registration information.

Ordeal candidates must bring the following items to their Ordeal weekend:

  • Work clothes appropriate for the weather
  • Work gloves
  • Water bottle
  • Sleeping bag
  • Ground cloth (for Friday night)
  • Tent (for Saturday night)
  • Full Class A uniform (for Saturday night)
