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.
Wahpekute Lodge serves more than 380 members across 14 counties in the Twin Valley Council. Wahpekute Lodge is part of Section C 1-A. Wahpekute Lodge is The Lodge of the Year for Section C 1-A. To contact the Wahpekute Lodge click on the member’s page below for the Lodge Adviser, Paul Taylor.

OA Helping To Raise Funds
Propane Heat Fundraiser
The Order of the Arrow is seeking donations to pay for propane heat for Camp Cuyuna’s admin building. The heater and associated ductwork will cost approximately $7500. Approximately $2100 has been raised to date. The Wahpekute Lodge and the Camp Cuyuna Alumni Association have each generously offered to match up to $1000 of additional donations raised for this project – for a total of $2000 in matching funds. Thank you for your interest in supporting the Order of the Arrow and Camp Cuyuna!

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.
