2019 Ordeal Candidate Registration

This page is for:

  • Youth (under 21) Ordeal Candidates elected by their troop during the 2019 unit election season.  The election must have been scheduled through and conducted by the local Chapter (each District corresponds to a Chapter).
  • Adults (21 and over) are nominated to be Ordeal Candidates by their troop committee or if a district Scouter by an appropriate district volunteer or professional,  Because the Order is a youth organization adult nominations DO NOT result in automatic candidacy.  Nominations are reviewed by the Lodge Adult Selection Committee to determine if the adult's membership will help fulfill the purpose of the Order.  If approved the nominee is invited to be an Ordeal Candidate.  You cannot register as an adult candidate until you have received this invitation.  All nominations for 2019 were done online so there is no chance to paperwork to go astray.  For more information on the Adult Candidate process read the Adult Nomination Procedures or contact Lodge Adviser Steve Leonardi (lodgeadviser@oaix.nnjbsa.org).

  • May 31 - June 2, 2019 at Camp Turrell

  • September 20 - 22, 2019 at Camp Lewis
