Order of the Arrow

OA Welcome Center at the Mabee Scout Reservation

Dear Arrowman and Vigil Honor Members,  We are in need of your help.   Our campaign to build The OA Welcome Center at Camp Garland is short.  We are planning on starting the building in September.  Currently we have raised $120,000.00 towards the $150,000.00 goal.  Please help us achieve this goal of building a lasting presence of our Order’s commitment to camping.  The Welcome Center will house a museum of lodge history and provide a display area for lodge memorabilia. Your tax-deductible donation will help us meet our goal. Any gift amount is appreciated and will be recognized in the Welcome Center.  There will be three limited edition Building Fund Lodge flaps for donations of $25, $50 and $100. Gifts above these amounts will also receive the patches. We will recognize our Bronze, Silver and Gold contributors on a plaque displayed inside the new Welcome Center. $1000    Bronze Level, $2500   Silver Level and $ 5000    Gold level  – any donation is appreciated.  Details:  Welcome Center  Pledge Form

For more than 90 years, the Order of the Arrow (OA) has recognized Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives.  This recognition provides encouragement for others to live these ideals as well.  Arrowmen 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.

Mission

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.

Purpose

As Scouting’s National Honor Society, our purpose is to:

  • 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.
