The Order of the Arrow promotes camping and, in this spirit, does not want any Scout or Venturer to miss the opportunity to attend a summertime camping or training program, offered by our Council and/or National BSA that provides a BSA camping and/or learning experience.
A Scout is Thrifty. The Boy Scouts of America and the Order of the Arrow encourage every Scout to pay their own way to Scouting activities, as this philosophy supports one of the basic aims of Scouting. However, we realize that Scouts need a little extra help at times to participate.
The Yah-Tah-Hey-Si-Kess Lodge offers Camperships to registered youth members of the Great Southwest Council. Lodge Camperships may not be used for out-of-Council programs, other than National BSA sponsored programs
