“For almost 100 years, being a servant leader is what the Order of the Arrow has been all about. It is our hope that ArrowTour will be an opportunity to tell the story of the Order of the Arrow by reflecting on our past and at the same time motivating others to give of themselves in service to others in the future.”
When the tour makes the stop on at our own Maple Dell Scout Camp, there will be interactive events for Scouts, volunteers, and Scouting alumni. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the Order of the Arrow, its story, and its future. Some of the program highlights includeexhibits, activities such as silk-screening and branding, and challenge games. Participants will have a chance to meet some of the Order’s national leaders, and alumni can learn about the Scouting Alumni Association and local alumni efforts to supporting Scouting in our area.
An exclusive ArrowTour Trading Post will carry ArrowTour and OA centennial merchandise. The Order of the Arrow will split the trading post proceeds with Utah National Parks Council. The program will conclude with a special show that recognizes the Order’s rich history and empowers participants to help shape the organization’s future. The Order of the Arrow is creating a truly unique and interactive experience for all Scouts, volunteers, and Scouting alumni.
The tour will open at 2 pm and will conclude at 7 pm; there is no registration, just come celebrate and have fun
