The word Elangomat is the Lenni Lenape word meaning “friend”. As an Elangomat you’ll be responsible for a crew of 8-10 candidates whom you’ll work with during their Ordeal. You will spend most of the day with your clan, setting an example of brotherhood, cheerfulness, and service, which the candidates learn through you. A brief training course given by the Elangomat Chairman on Friday night; we’ll teach you all you’ll need to know as an Elangomat. Because of the influence you’ll have in motivating the quality of your new brothers, your service as an Elangomat is one of the most important and rewarding things you can do in the lodge. You also get a free shirt when you serve as an elangomat during an ordeal weekend. 

We want every candidate to have a memorable experience during their Ordeal!
