The membership of Tipisa Lodge is formed by the arrowmen of the Central Florida Council. Its leadership is exclusively comprised of youth members (less than 21 years old) who are supported by adult advisers.
The Mission of the Lodge is to provide training in cheerful service and in leadership, setting the example of the Order’s guiding principles.
Order of the Arrow
The Order of the Arrow (OA) is the honor camping society of the Boy Scouts of America. Its stated purposes are:
- 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.
