How to Become an Elk

How to Become an Elk.

Elks is an exclusive membership–you must be sponsored by another Elk to join.

To qualify as an Elk you must:

  • Be over 21 years of age
  • Be an American Citizen
  • Believe in God


Once you can say yes to these 3 criteria, then ask yourself if you already know a friend who is an Elk and ask them to sponsor you or…

If you do not know any Elks then do a combination of the following:

  1. Find a local lodge close to you and pay them a visit and ask about being a members


To join Mojave Lodge

  1. Complete a membership form (completely!) Download it here
  2. Bring it down to the lodge along with the application fee and tell them you’re interested in becoming a member
    1. You can pay your $50 application fee online here for Mojave Lodge (non-refundable)
  3. After the inquiry research, if accepted for membership you’ll participate in an Orientation and Initiation.


After Initiation you will then be able to go to any lodge in America, walk in, sit down and find that you will be treated with respect, hospitality and kindness.

You’ll make new friends and have fun with the camaraderie of fellow Elks.
