Order of the Arrow to Change Membership Requirements in February 2019

As of February 2019, all registered members of the BSA will be eligible to join the Order of the Arrow, provided they meet the camping and election requirements. This means that the Order of the Arrow will be open to Venturers and Sea Scouts. And this also means it will be open to all members of Scouts BSA.

This is just another move to make the BSA programs more inclusive. No doubt some people will not like this move, but once again, this makes the promise and adventure of Scouting open to more people. Yes, that includes young women. And if they can meet the requirements, why not? #ScoutMeIn

    Will they still use the terms “Brotherhood” and “Arrowmen” or change those to reflect the new program as well?

    The OA is an honor society within Scouts that focus on service and leadership. This should be open to all even ventures or sea scouts. It is a great group that puts the scouting ideals in practice with service to others as its main focus points. Glad they made it official.
