ArrowTour

The purpose of the tour is to commemorate the Order of the Arrow’s 100th anniversary. During the event, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the Order of the Arrow, its story, and its future. Some of the program highlights include interactive exhibits, activities such as silk-screening and branding, and challenge games. Participants will have a chance to meet some of the Order’s national leaders, and alumni can learn about the Scouting Alumni Association and local alumni efforts to supporting Scouting in our area.

Two stops will be coming to our Section! The Tschitani Lodge stop will be held in conjunction with our Conclave on June 20th. Ownaeco Lodge will host a stop at Camp Sequassen on June 29th.
