What is the Order of the Arrow?

For 100 years the Order of the Arrow (OA) has recognized Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. This recognition 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, 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 and help to extend Scouting to America's youth.

Conclave provides for great opportunities for all Arrowmen, fun, fellowship, recreational activities, educational opportunities for our fellow brothers in all three Lodges and visiting Arrowmen from other Sections.. The conclave program seeks to increase the knowledge and understanding of the delegates in all aspects of the Order of the Arrow program.  Arrowmen should be inspired to set and commit themselves to higher goals of performance for themselves, and their lodges.  You don’t want to miss our impressive opening and closing shows, especially for our first W6P Conclave in Japan, this is a historic event that you can be a part of.  

We will holding a Section Election to elect the 2018-2019 Section Chief, Section Vice Chief and Section Secretary.  In order to run for office, you will need the approval of your Scout Executive stating the position(s) you intend on running for with the approval by your respective Scout Executive or his designated representative.  You will need to be under the age of 21 during your entire term of office.  If you desire more information, please contact Mr. Wes Ishizu, the Section Adviser at wishizu@gmail.com.
