Order of the Arrow

Troop 166 is active in the Order of the Arrow.
As Scouting’s National Honor Society, our purpose is to:

  • Recognize those who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives and through that recognition cause others to conduct themselves in a way that warrants similar recognition.
  • Promote camping, responsible outdoor adventure, and environmental stewardship as essential components of every Scout’s experience, in the unit, year-round, and in summer camp.
  • Develop leaders with the willingness, character, spirit and ability to advance the activities of their units, our Brotherhood, Scouting, and ultimately our nation.
  • Crystallize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others.

Scouts are elected into the Order by their peers as recognition of their exemplary commitment to the Scout Oath and Law in their lives.

We are part of the Talidandaganu Lodge of the Cherokee Area Council.
