Glacier’s Edge Council is the home of the Takoda Lodge of the Order of the Arrow. The Order of the Arrow (OA) is Scouting’s National Honor Society. The OA is based on the principles of Brotherhood, Cheerfulness, and Service. Its membership fulfills the Order’s purpose of recognizing those who exemplify Scouting’s values, promoting responsible outdoor adventure, developing young leaders, and crystallizing the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others.
Established in 1915, the OA emphasizes service to the unit. In this way, Arrowmen give back to their troops with the leadership skills and values of service learned through the Order. The Order’s program complements the troop’s, providing valuable leadership training programs, world-class high adventure opportunities, and exciting national conferences. Members of the Order of the Arrow are chosen by their fellow scouts through an election process at a troop meeting. To get your unit introduced to the Order of the Arrow, contact our lodge and arrange for an elections team to visit.
