2022 Vigil Induction


Only Vigil candidates and members may sign up to attend Vigil induction events. Vigil Induction is scheduled for Saturday, August 13 – Sunday, August 14, 2022 at Camp Olmsted|Goshen Scout Reservation. If you are not able to attend this scheduled induction date, you must contact the Vigil Inductions Team at your earliest opportunity. 

Vigil candidates should identify their guide when registering. Vigil members planning to be a Vigil guide should identify the candidate that they will be guiding.  Tents will not be provided. Vigil members should plan on bringing their own personal tent to this event.

In addition to your uniform shirt and Brotherhood sash, candidates should dress appropriately to remain in the outdoors for a lengthy time (remember come prepared for the season and not the day). Prepare your pack for the experience by including the following items:

Canteen or a large water bottle
Rain gear
Pocket knife, axe, or saw
Small Camp Chair

We ask that guides bring a gallon jug or bucket.

You must arrive by 7 pm Saturday, August 13. Check-in will begin at 7 pm and meetings will begin at 8 pm. Please eat dinner before arriving on Saturday night.

Our experience has shown that candidates will be tired following the Vigil; driving home is not permitted. You MUST carpool with someone who is not participating in the overnight activities (this is a National policy).  Please arrange for your ride to pick you up about an hour after sunrise, around 9 am on Sunday, August 14.

The cost is $60 per Vigil Candidate. This price includes your registration for Vigil, as well as your registration for the Lodge Banquet to be held in January 2023. If you plan to purchase the 2023 Lodge Passport, this registration can cover one of your guests.

The cost is $15 for Vigil members attending as guides or staff.  Staff positions must be approved by the Vigil Inductions Adviser in advance.
