I’m New to OA
Welcome! You are a member of an elite group of young men who set themselves apart as leaders, servants, and positive individuals in the scouting program. Be wearing the white sash, you are stating that you are one of the best of the best. However, membership in the Order of the Arrow is not just an award, it is a responsibility. Your ordeal was not the end of the road, it was just the beginning. The Order of the Arrow greatly broadens the opportunity in your scouting career. From extra-long, extra-cheap High Adventure Treks to the best training offered in the Scouting program, the opportunities are endless. You are expected to lead in the Order of the Arrow program as a mentor, and continue your tenure helping the lodge. How? To get started, take a look at the lodge calendar, and make plans to attend every one that you can. Each event is another time for us to come together and establish our vision about how we are going to help others moving forward. Also, get in contact with your chapter leadership and plan on attending weekly or monthly chapter meetings. Finally, head over to jumpstart.oa-bsa.org, a website designed to help new members learn more about the Order of the Arrow and start their journey to Brotherhood.
The National Leadership Seminar is the premier training offered in the Order of the Arrow, and is considered by many the best training program in scouting. In fact, NYLT and Wood Badge for the 21st century were both based off of NLS. Best of all, nearly all lodge members who sign up to attend receive full scholarships by contacting the lodge before registering. Sign up today for an upcoming NLS at http://www.southern.oa-bsa.org/nls/, or by contacting the Lodge Chief using the “Contact us” tab.
Order of the Arrow High Adventure offers a whole new level of excitement. Besides the fact that OAHA treks are hundreds of dollars cheaper, there are many things that set OAHA apart from all the other High Adventure opportunities. They last longer, are usually paid in full by the lodge, and you even get to plan all of the details of your trek. For more information and to download an application, go to http://www.adventure.oa-bsa.org/ or contact the Lodge Chief using the “Contact us” tab.
I’m looking for Resources
Many positions within our program require resources for the Arrowmen who lead and guide the program. These resources can be found in the “Resources” tab above.
