This is the main handbook for Order of the Arrow members. It includes basic information all members should know, and reflects current policies.

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 Order’s program complements the troop, providing valuable leadership training programs, world-class high adventure opportunities, and exciting national conferences. Members of the Order of the Arrow are chosen through an election process at a troop meeting. Members are recognized as those who best live the ideals of brotherhood, cheerfulness, and service. Under the guidance of selected capable adults, OA members under 21 provide leadership to the organization. The OA emphasizes servant-leadership nationwide in local councils and service on a national level.
