Congratulations on your election into BSA’s National Honor Society! The induction ceremony, called the Ordeal, is the first step toward full membership in the Order. The entire experience is designed to teach significant values.
The Ordeal is offered on the following dates and must be completed within 1 year of your election or nomination date.
- April Fellowship – Apr 9-10, 2021 @ Camp Shenandoah
- June Fellowship – Jun 11-13, 2021 @ Camp Shenandoah
- August Fellowship – Aug 13-15, 2021 @ Camp Shenandoah

Check-in for the Ordeal will be at the Camp Office, at 5:00 PM. The weekend events begin promptly at 7:00 PM. Late arrivals are unfortunately not permitted. The Ordeal weekend ends at approximately 7:00 PM on Saturday.
Pre-registration is required for all members, at all events, including Ordeal Candidates. This helps us with meal planning and to ensure that there are enough materials for all new participants. The event cost is $45.00 for Ordeal candidates, which includes event fee, Ordeal Sash, membership flap and other required materials.
