For over 90 years, the Order of the Arrow 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.
The mission of Tsali Lodge in the Order of the Arrow is to fulfill the OA's purpose as an integral part of the Boy Scouts of America through positive youth leadership under the guidance of selected capable adults. The lodge hopes to attain its mission through positive youth leadership under the guidance of capable adults.
As Scouting’s National Honor Society, our purpose is to:
Recognize the scouts and scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives, motivating other campers to conduct themselves in a similar manner
Develop and maintain the camping traditions and spirit.
Promote Scout camping by supporting the scouting units’ camping programs during the year and at summer camp, as directed by the camping committee of the council
Foster in each scout the habit of helpfulness as a life purpose in unselfish service to others.
