To become a member of the Order of the Arrow, candidates must go through the induction ceremony, called the Ordeal. It is the first step toward full membership in the Order. During the experience, candidates undergo a series of tests meant to demonstrate the basic principles of OA membership, while at the same time working on service projects to benefit the council's camps. The entire experience is designed to teach significant values. The Ordeal Committee plans, conducts, and carries out the Ordeal induction weekends.
