Becoming A Member

Do you enjoy having fun? Do you like the fellowship of others?  Do you like to participate in philanthropy? If so, you should consider becoming a Shriner! 

If you hold the title of Master Mason in Freemasonry, you qualify and are invited to join the Shriners.

In order to become a Shriner you must ask a current Shriner to support and sponsor your application. If you do not know a Shriner personally, please call the Calam Temple office at 208-743-6916 and we can get you connected with a Shriner who would be happy to mentor you through the process. 

If you are not a Freemason, you must pursue that first. There is a link at the bottom of the page that can assist with that process. Once you are a Master Mason you will then be eligible to petition to become a Shriner. 

There are many benefits to becoming a Shriner.

  • Membership in a well-known fraternal organization recognized for its social and philanthropic activities.
  • Opportunity to develop lasting relationships with like minded men from all over the world
  • Engage in social activities and events that are available for the entire family. Participate in many special interest groups with Shriners that allow like minded men to enjoy a little high-spirited fun. Motorcycles, trap shooting, parades, golf, flying and sports cars are all examples of these types of groups
  • The privilege of supporting the "world’s greatest philanthropy,” Shriners Hospitals for Children®, offers Shriners many opportunities to find personal fulfillment and satisfaction.
