Order of the Arrow
About Nayawin RaR Lodge:
Nayawin RaR Lodge is the Order of the Arrow Lodge for Tuscarora Council. The Lodge is divided into three chapters - Allogagan (Wayne County, Torhunta District), Shaw Rar Ren (Johnston County, Neusiok District), and ToReWaWaKen (Sampson and Duplin Counties, Coharie District).
What is the Order of the Arrow?
The Order of the Arrow is an organization within the Boy Scouts of America that provides service and leadership opportunities for older Scouts. It is the BSA’s honored camper society and is dedicated to cheerful service.
The purpose of the Order of the Arrow is fourfold:
- To recognize those Scout campers who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives
- To develop and maintain camping traditions and spirit
- To promote Scout camping
- To crystallize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others
Who can be in the Order of the Arrow?
The OA is often referred to as “Scouting’s Honor Society”. Membership in the OA is granted only to those who are elected by their own Troop. Thus, members are selected primarily by non-members.
Adult selection is based on their ability to perform the necessary functions to help the Order fulfill its purpose, and is not for recognition. Selected adult Scouters must be an asset to the Order because of demonstrated abilities, and provide a positive role model for the youth members of the lodge.
