Scouting's National Honor Society

OA Brothers from Boy Scout Troop 237 are members of Shu-Shu-Gah Lodge #24. The troop has had a long and proud history of rendering cheerful service to the Lodge. Moreover, four Lodge Chiefs, two Lodge Advisers, three Section Chiefs, and the 2003 Northeast Region Chief have been members of Troop 237. The Order of the Arrow, and Shu-Shu-Gah Lodge provide a fabulous program for older Scouts by opening new doors to the Scouting program, and affording exciting leadership opportunities.

Mission

The mission of the Order of the Arrow is to fulfill its purpose as an integral part of the Boy Scouts of America through positive youth leadership under the guidance of selected capable adults.

Purpose

As Scouting’s National Honor Society, The Order of the Arrow's purpose is to:

  • Recognize those who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives and through that recognition cause others to conduct themselves in a way that warrants similar recognition.
  • Promote camping, responsible outdoor adventure, and environmental stewardship as essential components of every Scout’s experience, in the unit, year-round, and in summer camp.
  • Develop leaders with the willingness, character, spirit and ability to advance the activities of their units, our Brotherhood, Scouting, and ultimately our nation.
  • Crystallize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others.
