Company Overview

Shriners International is a fraternity based on fun, fellowship and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, relief and truth. The possibilities for having fun as a Shriner are endless. Our local Shrine Centers (chapters) around the world have thousands of activity-based clubs, units and events that provide ways for members to connect with each other in a fun environment. A unique aspect of our local chapters is that creativity is encouraged, and if a club for a particular activity doesn’t exist, members are empowered to create one.
