Mowogo Lodge: Continuing Service During the Pandemic

There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way lodges function, especially with regards to inductions. With most of the country in some form of lockdown, meeting in larger groups is still nearly impossible. One lodge, however, utilized relaxing restrictions in their state to effectively host one of the largest Ordeals since the beginning of the pandemic, welcoming an astonishing 107 new members into the Order of the Arrow.

Pellissippi Lodge Welcomes You!

Greetings fellow Arrowmen,

My name is John Campbell, Lodge Chief for Pellissippi Lodge 230 of the Great Smoky Mountain Council, which will host the 2022 National Order of the Arrow Conference. We are extremely excited to be the service lodge for NOAC by having the opportunity to collaborate with the national OA officers and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville to make this make an incredibly enjoyable and safe event.

Introducing Thrive Connect
From 2020 to 2021, the Order of the Arrow suffered its most significant membership loss to date of 23,969 people. The Thrive initiative brings that decline to a halt, ushering in the Order of the Arrow’s second century of growth where it matters most — the local level.

Chiefly Speaking


This year has many opportunities for us to capture and shape our Order. We are excited to work together with lodge leaders across the country as we rise to the occasion and build the new era of the Order of the Arrow. In just our first month as your national officers, we have had the privilege to join you at chapter, lodge and section virtual events across the country. Each event we attend reminds us of the critical role you and our local programs play in delivering our mission and ensuring our program is available to all future youth.
