Order of the Arrow
The Order of the Arrow (OA) is the national honor society of the Boy Scouts of America. But first and foremost we are a service organization; we are the Brotherhood of Cheerful Service. Every spring and fall at our fellowships we work
at improving our council’s camps. Every fall we help with popcorn super Saturday and in the spring we have a major food drive.
Our chapter meets on the second Thursday of every month at the Thunderbird District Roundtable meeting. We also plan a social event every month.
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 crystallize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others
The mission of the Order of the Arrow is to fulfill its purpose as an integral part of the Boy Scouts of America through positive youth leadership under the guidance of selected capable adults.
Founded in 1915, it uses American Indian traditions and ceremonies to bestow recognition on Scouts selected by their peers as best exemplifying the Scout Oath and Scout Law in their daily lives. Inducted members are known as Arrowmen or brothers and are organized into local youth-led lodges for fellowship and the rendering of service to Boy Scout councils and their communities.
