Spring Inductions is this weekend! We are very excited to see you at our Ordeal event! Here is some stuff to remember for the event.
Note: If you are not feeling well, please stay home! We will happily defer your payment to a future event.

How it works

Candidates will be split up into groups called cohorts. Cohorts will be made up of 50 candidates to limit the number of people one may come in contact with. Each individual cohort will attend ceremonies, complete service projects, and depart the event as a group.

Find Your Cohort

  • Completed Pre-event Health Screening Form (Required)

Ordeal Check-in:

Check-in for candidates will run from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM on Friday night. Please eat dinner before arriving. Candidates will have their temperatures taken and will turn in their pre-event health screening forms at check-in. Please have your pre-event health screening forms easily accessible within your car to prevent hold-ups in the check-in process. Also, please have your BSA Health forms part A & B readily available to submit at check-in. This form will not be returned at the end of the event. Candidates will undergo their ceremonies then be put to bed, no food will be served Friday night. 

During the Event:

During the event, candidates will be expected to follow the health and safety precautions listed in the previous email. This list of precautions can also be found by clicking the button below. Candidates will be fed meals in a “to-go” fashion.

Before the conclusion of the event candidates will be allowed to go into the Lodge Trading Post so make sure to bring some money to get your fix of Lodge 104 Memorabilia.
