Order of the Arrow

Remember, if you took your Ordeal in 2022, you can attend any of our 2022 Ordeals or the fall fellowship for free

Ordeal / Brotherhood

August 19 – 20, 2022
Camp Oyo

It’s time to head south for our next Ordeal / Brotherhood. Come join us at Camp Oyo, nestled in the in the beautiful hills of Shawnee State Forrest in Southern Ohio.
This will be our third Ordeal / Brotherhood for 2022 and we always have a great time at this rustic camp. We will need help in all aspects of running an Ordeal. 
This would also be a great time to seal your membership in the Order of the Arrow by completing your Brotherhood. It’s easy to do and there will be plenty of other members there to help you achieve it. We see to it that nobody fails. Brotherhood costs an additional $20.00 add to the regular event fee. For that you get a new Brotherhood sash with the two brotherhood bars, a Brotherhood totem that you will make and customize just for yourself.
The cost to attend this event is $25.00, however if you pre-register by August 14th, 2022 we will give you a $5.00 discount making it just $20.00.

Ordeal / Brotherhood

September 16 – 18, 2022

There’s just one last chance to attend an Ordeal in 2022, so if you know anyone that was elected in 2021 or 2022 that hasn’t completed their Ordeal yet, try to get them there before it’s too late.
This will be our last Ordeal / Brotherhood for 2022 and it promices to be the biggest one of the year. We will need help in all aspects of running an Ordeal.
