Southwest Florida CouncilOrder of the Arrow

The Order of the Arrow is Scouting's National Honor Society.

Purpose of the Order of the Arrow

The purpose of the Order of the Arrow is four-fold:

  • 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.

The Mission of the Lodge

The mission of Osceola Lodge, and every other registered lodge in the Order of the Arrow, is based on the following:

The mission of the lodge is to achieve the purpose of the Order of the Arrow as an integral part of the Boy Scouts of America in the council through positive youth leadership under guidance of selected capable adults.
