    Papago Lodge #494
    Order of the Arrow
    Scouting Fraternity

    The Order of the Arrow (OA) is the national honor society of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). It uses American Indian-styled traditions and ceremonies to bestow recognition on scouts selected by their peers as best exemplifying the ideals of Scouting. The society was created in 1915 as a means of reinforcing the Scout Law and to provide support to local scouting projects.

    This lodge is the OA Chapter for this Council. The Tribe of Papago was an honor camper society started in 1923 in Catalina Council at Camp Lawton. The society was invented, and all the ceremonies were written, by the Camp Director and Professional Scouter Harry Ogle. This society has continued to this time, although it began to be diminished in the late 1960?s when a Sioux System was used for a few years.
