Order of the Arrow

The Quapaw Lodge will host all members of the Order of the Arrow on Monday night following dinner, outside of the Trading. Order of the Arrow members are also encouraged to wear the OA sash Friday evening through closing campfire. Remember that the OA sash is only worn with the full uniform.

During the closing campfire Friday night, the Quapaw Lodge will call out the new members selected during unit elections. If you are attending Camp Rockefeller from out of council and would like your Scouts called out this night, then you must bring a signed letter from your council stating that we may call your Scouts out.

The purpose of the Order of the Arrow:

· Recognize those who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives and through that recognition cause others to conduct themselves in a way that warrants similar recognition.

· Promote camping, responsible outdoor adventure, and environmental stewardship as essential components of every Scout’s experience, in the unit, year-round, and in summer camp.

· Develop leaders with the willingness, character, spirit and ability to advance the activities of their units, our Brotherhood, Scouting, and ultimately our nation.

· Crystallize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others.

Since its beginning, our Council has worked to uphold the traditions of the Order of the Arrow in all its activities. Callouts will be held at summer camp. Out of council units must present a letter from the home council approving a “callout” from the Quapaw Area Council at Camp Rockefeller.
