Lodge Unit of Excellence Award Form

unit_of_excellence_awardThe Order of the Arrow Unit of Excellence Award is an annual award that seeks to identify those units, and the leaders within them, who excel at incorporating the OA into their annual planning. This award is intended to provide a tool for lodges to recognize, incentivize, and operationalize unit-level participation in Order of the Arrow programs.

Unit leaders (OA Troop Reps, OA Troop Rep Advisers, and Scoutmasters) should download the form and strive to meet all the categories.

Return the completed form to your Lodge Staff Adviser before December 31 to receive your award in the Spring.

 

Cub Scouts and the Order of the Arrow

cubscoutCub Scouts and Webelos Scouts play a large role in the future of the Boy Scout program and ultimately the Order of the Arrow. For several years now, there has been a steady decline in the number of Cub Scouts and in the number of Webelos transitioning to Boy Scouts. As Arrowmen, we need to step up and give back to Cubs Scouts and Webelos. The Northeast Region Cub Scout Task Force has designed a program titled “Cubs@Fellowship”. It has been tested around the region. The main ideas behind this program is to get the Cub Scouts and Webelos to become familiar with the Boy Scout program, while showing them “fun with a purpose.” Cub Scouts really look up to Boy Scouts and what the future holds for them in the program.

Please review these documents for more information about the “Cubs@Fellowship” program and join the effort to keep youth in Scouting.

National Trails Day and the OA

NTD_2013_copyright2_RGB-1024x1019Since our humble beginning at a local summer camp, situated in an island wilderness, our Order has always been passionate about camping promotion, responsible outdoor adventure, and environmental stewardship. Consequently, we are excited to highlight a partnership, which with your help and support, can help write a new chapter in our commitment to the great outdoors.

The Order of the Arrow has partnered with the American Hiking Society (AHS) to provide backing and cheerful service to the AHS’s annual National Trails Day which this year will be held Saturday June 7th. National Trails Day (NTD) is a chance to celebrate the trails we enjoy whether personally or in Scouting, and an opportunity to ensure their continued upkeep and maintenance.

I would like to encourage your lodge and subsequent chapters to
consider holding an event or service project in conjunction with NTD to give back to the trails in your area. The AHS has made the process of joining or hosting a NTD event easy; at the link below you will find more detailed information on how to register an event you may decide to put on or help you find an event near you Arrowmen could attend.

Thank you for everything you do for our Order and if you have any questions feel free to ask. Together we can help continue the adventure by helping to maintain America’s public lands.

Yours in service,

Kyle Piper
2014 Northeast Region Chief
