The Order of the Arrow (OA) is the national honor society of the Boy Scouts of America. For 99 years, the Order of the Arrow has recognized Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. The Order of the Arrow provides encouragement for others to live these ideals as well. Arrowmen are known for maintaining camping traditions and spirit, promoting year-round and long-term resident camping, developing leaders, and providing cheerful service to others. OA service, activities, adventures, and training for youth and adults are models of quality leadership development and programming that enrich, support, and help to extend Scouting to America's youth.

Boy Scouts who were elected into the Order of the Arrow by their troop must complete an Ordeal within one year, in order to become a member of Colonneh Lodge. Please keep in mind that weekends in the fall are full of football games, band competitions, and other outside obligations, so please plan to attend one of the Ordeal earlier in the year, if possible. A candidate can only complete his Ordeal in our lodge.

Annual Planning: A common element of strong units is they all have a good annual program planned a year in advance. The plan is then shared with all families in the form of an annual program calendar. Two other key elements of successful units are trained leaders and having the right leaders.
