Order of the Arrow

The Order of the Arrow is the national honor society of the Boy Scouts.  Youth are elected by fellow Scouts for exemplifying the Oath and Law in their daily life.  The Order of the Arrow is based on American Indian tradition and dedicated to the ideal of cheerful service.

The Order of the Arrow strives to achieve the following:

  • Recognize Scout campers who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives
  • Develop and maintain camping traditions and camping spirit
  • Promote Scout camping
  • Crystalize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others
