Order of the Arrow - Es-Kaielgu Lodge #311
For more than 90 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.
Es-Kaielgu Lodge of the Order of the Arrow is an integral part of the programs of Inland Northwest Council. Members of Es-Kaielgu provide thousands of hours of service every year to Inland Northwest Council's camps and members. From Community Service Projects to serving on outstanding Camp Staffs, our lodge's Arrowmen make up the best young men our council has to offer.
The purpose of the Order of the Arrow is fourfold:
- To recognize those who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives.
- To develop and maintain camping traditions and spirit
- To promote Scout camping
- To crystallize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others
