For more than 100 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.
The local organization for the Order of the Arrow is represented by the Occoneechee Lodge. Founded in 1937, the lodge currently has more than 1700 active members from across the Occoneechee Council. They focus on leadership development by offering opportunities outside the traditional unit that center around service and fellowship.
