Order of the Arrow

The Blue Ox Lodge of the Order of the Arrow has served scouts in Gamehaven Council for more than 80 years, providing recognition of outstanding scouts, leadership training, and fun.

What Do We Do?

The Lodge puts on several events during the year.  These range from the conclaves at camp to our awards banquet to the annual Camp-o-rama.  The Lodge youth leaders plan, organize, and run these events.

Arrowmen can also attend National events such as the National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) where 7,000 arrowmen will take over the Unversity of Indiana campus for fun, training, and fellowship. 

There is also an opportunity to learn leadership skills - from the Lodge Leadership Development Conference, to region, level National Leadership Seminars

And Arrowmen have special opportunities to go to Philmont, Northern Tier, and Sea Base.  The Trail Crew, Wilderness Voyage, and Ocean Adventure programs mix a week of service  - maintaining trails, fixing portages, and reef habiliatation  - within a week treking through the wilderness.
