Purpose of the Order of the Arrow
To recognize those campers – Scouts and Scouters – who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives and by such recognition cause other campers to conduct themselves in such manner as to warrant recognition.
To develop and maintain camping traditions and spirit.
To promote Scout camping, which reaches its greatest effectiveness as a part of the unit's camping program, both year-round and in the summer camp, as directed by the camping committee of the council.
To crystallize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others.
Our Vision for the Order of the Arrow
To be recognized as Scouting's National Honor Society and an integral part of every council. Our service, activities, adventures, and training for youth and adults, are model of quality leadership development and programming that enrich, support, and help extend Scouting to America's youth.
Nationally more than 183,000 members in lodges affiliated with more than 300 BSA local councils. The Jaccos Towne lodge has over 1500 members in the Crossroads of America Council.
To become a member, a youth must be a registered member of a Boy Scout troop or Varsity Scout team and hold the First Class rank. The youth must have experienced 15 days and nights of camping during the two years before his election. The 15 days and nights of camping must include one, but not more than one, long-term camp consisting of six consecutive days and five nights of resident camping, approved and under the auspices and standards of the Boy Scouts of America. The balance of the camping must be overnight, weekend, or other short-term camps. Their fellow troop or varsity team members, following approval by the Scoutmaster or varsity Scout Coach, elect scouts to the Order.
