Order of the Arrow

Are your scouts looking for the next thing in their scouting path? Order of the Arrow is a great way to get more involved in scouting and community service. Great leadership opportunities exist, more opportunities for growth, greater ability to travel, and a better way to create friendships throughout the Council.

Chapter 3 and Chapter 4 have merged! We are now Chapter 2. Election time is upon us, contact one of the advisors to schedule your unit election: Chapter 2 Advisor, Doug Hansen.
