Order of the Arrow
The Order of the Arrow was founded in 1915 at Treasure Island Scout Camp, which was near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was founded by Dr. E. Urner Goodman and Carrol A. Edson. They saw that other scout camps had honor societies and so they wanted to create one for their camp.

Troop OA Reps
Does your troop have an OA Representative?
Senior Patrol Leaders – it is your duty to choose an OA member from your troop to bring news from the chapter meeting to your troop meeting.
If your troop does not have one, someone will be in contact with you.
OA Reps should attend Chapter Meetings.
Our OA Lodge has always been very strong. Just look at the number of scouts and leaders wearing the lodge pocket flap. Attendance at each district OA chapter meeting has increased but could continue to get better.
Membership in the Order of the Arrow is much more than completing a weekend ordeal and wearing a patch. Your OA members need to be active. PLEASE encourage all youth OA members to attend the monthly chapter meetings held at Roundtable. Since you or a leader from your troop should attend each roundtable, offer to pickup your scouts and bring them along.
Every troop should have a scout who serves as their Order of the Arrow Troop Representative. This is an official position for scouts, and a position patch is available. This scout is responsible for attending the monthly chapter meeting and energizing other troop OA members to attend. He serves as the coordinator of all OA information from the lodge and chapter to his troop.
