Frequently Asked Questions

Scouts and leaders elected as candidates have two opportunities to go through their Induction Weekend. These are in fall and spring.  If you have been called out, you should receive a letter/email about a month before each function with the specific dates and costs. If you have not received your letter, you can call the Scout Office, ask any OA member, or contact an Executive Committee member by going to the Lodge Leadership page on this website.

Each candidate has exactly one year of eligibility from the date of their ceremony. Hence, after that date, you must be elected again, assuming you still meet the election eligibility requirements.

After you have completed your Induction Weekend, you will have the opportunity to shop at the trading post, meet your fellow lodge members, and go through the “OA Fair” on Sunday morning.

The Induction Weekend is going to be held regardless of weather conditions. The only exception is if the weather will be severe enough for the event to be canceled. In the case of severe weather, a mass email will be sent out to all registered participants and staff.

Since this is part of our Induction process, we prefer that those eligible for the OA go into the Induction Weekend not knowing what events take place during the weekend, as they are significant to understanding the core principles of the Order of the Arrow.

If you are a concerned parent and would like to know about the events that take place during Induction Weekends, you can contact the Lodge Adviser by going to the Lodge Leadership page.

The fee to attend an Induction Weekend as a “Candidate” is $45.00. This fee includes the following: first-year membership dues, new ordeal sash, current lodge flap, current OA handbook, four meals, and one cracker barrel.
