Order of the Arrow National Web Site
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.
