"The Order of the Arrow is a thing of the out of doors rather than the indoors. It was born in an island wilderness. It needs the sun and rain, the woods and the plains, the waters and the starlit sky." -E. Urner Goodman
Would you like to join Arrowmen across the nation in cheerful service and the formation of lasting brotherhood on the trails of Philmont Scout Ranch for a super low price? I know I would. For fourteen days arrowmen will unite as one to endure a mental, physical, and spiritual journey that will lead to successful accomplishments. The first week of the fourteen-day adventure will consist of trail construction and maintenance under the guidance of Philmont trail foremen. The second week is a seven-day backpacking trek that is designed by the participants. The project's mission is to maintain, reinforce, and enhance the purpose of the Order of the Arrow by using Scout camping traditions. Participants are expected to use their experience to benefit their troop, chapter, lodge and council programs. Camping is a method of Scouting that enhances and builds stronger programs and people.
