Since 1950, the Order of the Arrow has played an essential role at each National Jamboree through a program called Operation Arrow. Arrowmen form into chapters and support all aspects of the jamboree program, logistics, and operations. Operation Arrow consists of two main programs: OA Service Corps and Summit Apex.
The Summit Apex is a new half-day outpost program area that will inspire Scouts to realize and truly appreciate the benefits of their Scouting membership. Scouts will engage in large-scale activities, a unique jamboree dinner experience, and evening reflection/celebration that will leave them with a renewed enthusiasm for Scouting and a determination to grow membership back home.
Operation Arrow is a fantastic opportunity for outstanding Arrowmen ages 16 and older to participate as a Jamboree Service Team (JST) staff member. Serving as a JST member is one of the most affordable ways to attend the Jamboree. It allows you to meet Arrowmen from across the nation, building life-long friendships through service while enjoying the jamboree's fun.
We have created a promotional toolkit to help you and your promotions team invite more Arrowmen to join the fun of Operation Arrow. This toolkit includes everything you might need, from pre-made social media posts, email templates, a promotional slide deck perfect for winter banquets, and more! Feel free to tag us @OperationArrow on social media posts.
We hope to see you at the 2023 National Jamboree!
