What is the Order of the Arrow? 

The Order of the Arrow is a national honorary society for experienced campers, operated by the Boy Scouts of America.  The organization is based on Native American traditions and is dedicated to the idea of cheerful service.

The purpose of the Order of the Arrow is  fourfold:

  • To recognize those Scout campers who best exemplify the Scout Oath and law in their daily lives
  • To develop and maintain camping traditions and spirit
  • To promote Scout camping
  • To emphasis the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others

To become a member of the Order of the Arrow, a Scout must be nominated by his Scoutmaster and then elected by the youth members of his Troop.  The Scout must complete an Ordeal at his Council's camp to earn his arrow sash.  The lodge for our Council is Nataepu Shohpe Lodge #25.

Adults can become members by meeting the camping requirements and being nominated by the Troop Committee.
