Purpose

As Scouting’s National Honor Society, the purpose of the Order of the Arrow is to:

  • Recognize those who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives and through that recognition cause others to conduct themselves in a way that warrants similar recognition.

  • Promote camping, responsible outdoor adventure, and environmental stewardship as essential components of every Scout’s experience, in the unit, year-round, and in summer camp.

  • Develop leaders with the willingness, character, spirit and ability to advance the activities of their units, our Brotherhood, Scouting, and ultimately our nation.

  • Crystallize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others.

 

History

The Order of the Arrow (OA) was founded by Dr. E. Urner Goodman and Carroll A. Edson in 1915 at the Treasure Island Camp of the Philadelphia Council, B.S.A. It became an official program experiment in 1922 and was approved as part of the Boy Scout program in 1934. In 1948 the Order of the Arrow, recognized as the Boy Scouts of America’s National Brotherhood of Honor Campers, became an official part of the National Camping Program of the Boy Scouts of America. Towards the end of the twentieth century, the OA expanded its focus to include conservation, high adventure, and servant-leadership. In 1998, the Order became recognized as Scouting's National Honor Society. 

 

Lodge

The Na Mokupuni O Lawelawe Lodge 567 is the local branch of the National Order of the Arrow organization. It is chartered as the local lodge of the Aloha Council, Boy Scouts of America. The name “Na Mokupuni O Lawelawe” when translated into English from Hawaiian means “Islands of Service”. The lodge symbol is the “Wa’a Kaulua” or the Hawaiian canoe and the lodge totem is the "Pueo" or the Hawaiian Short-Eared Owl.
