Order of the Arrow 100 Years And Counting

The Order of the Arrow is celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2015, and we want you to join us as push into a new century!

Our Purpose

The Central Region exists for many purposes, including the promotion of the Order of the Arrow and its goals within the region. The Region also assists in promoting and coordinating National events such as the Philmont Trail Crew, OA Wilderness Voyage, OA Ocean Adventure, and the National Order of the Arrow Conference. Beyond general administration, the Central Region runs four National Leadership Seminars (NLS), multiple National Lodge Adviser Training Seminar (NLATS), and one Section Officer Seminar (SOS) annually.
