The Order of the Arrow
The Order of the Arrow (often abbreviated OA) is a Scouting Honors society. Its members are elected in individual troops by all scouts, and they have to pass through the Ordeal. (Details about the Ordeal are a closely guarded OA secret) There are three levels of the OA: Ordeal, Brotherhood, and Vigil. The Order does many service projects and gives back to the community a great deal; Na Tsi Hi (nah TEE-see hai), the lodge of our area, was instrumental in Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy relief.
