May Ordeal

Pennacook Lodge invites eligible candidates to its first Ordeal induction of 2023. This is a wonderful opportunity to start your journey with Pennacook Lodge and the Order of the Arrow. The Ordeal is a candidate’s induction into the OA, and is an experience they will remember forever.

Ordeal Candidates, both youth and adult, should go here to find candidate information.  A packing list for the weekend is also available for download from that page. Registration for the induction includes all meals for Saturday and breakfast on Sunday – no food will be provided on Friday evening.

A Candidate and Parent Information session is scheduled for Wednesday, May 17th. Please check back for further details (time, place, format, etc.).

Check-in for the Induction is between 7:30 PM – 8:00 PM on Friday, and check-out will be at approximately 11:00 AM on Sunday.
