OA Trail Crew, Philmont NM
Order of the Arrow . . .
For over 100 years, the Order of the Arrow – the OA – has recognized Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives.
This recognition encourages others to live these ideals as well. OA members are known for maintaining camping traditions and spirit, promoting year-round and long term resident camping, and providing cheerful service to others.
OA service, activities, adventures, and training for youth and adults are models of quality leadership development and programming that enrich and help to extend Scouting to America’s youth.
