Egwa Tawa Dee Lodge
Order of the Arrow

"For he who serves his fellows, is of all his fellows, greatest"
- Dr. E. Urner Goodman

Welcome to the Egwa Tawa Dee Lodge Official Web Site!

The Order of the Arrow is Scouting's National Honor Society. For more than 90 years, the Order of the Arrow (OA) has recognized Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. This recognition provides encouragement for others to live these ideals as well. Arrowmen are known for maintaining camping traditions and spirit, promoting year-round and long term resident camping, and providing cheerful service to others. OA service, activities, adventures, and training for youth and adults are models of quality leadership development and programming that enrich and help to extend Scouting to America's youth.

The Egwa Tawa Dee Lodge helps the Atlanta Area Council provide a quality Scouting program through recognition of Scouting spirit and performance, development of youth leadership and service, promotion of Scout camping and outdoor programs, and enhancement of membership tenure. Egwa Tawa Dee Lodge is supported by twelve Chapters that include all Districts of the Atlanta Area Council.

Woodruff Scout Camp, Day Of Service

Woodruff Scout Camp, 31 Woodruff Drive, Blairsville, GA 30512, https://goo.gl/maps/qtNykTCCP5D2

Our council is hosting a Woodruff Workers Weekend May 11-13, 2018 at Woodruff Scout Camp. There is a planned day of service for that Saturday intended to provide repair and maintenance to help get the camp ready for summer camp.

This event is open to Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, and adult volunteers. Participants may come for the day on Saturday or camp for the weekend. Lunch will be provided on Saturday.

Pre-registration is required at; AtlantaBSA.org/woodruffwork

In keeping with our Order’s purpose Egwa Tawa Dee will support this endeavor as a Lodge Day of Service. Lodge members participating in this event will earn service hours, Egwa Totem Service beads, and the 2018 Lodge Day of Service patch (some restrictions apply). These service hours will count towards the “Service to Scouting” requirement of the 2018 Egwa Service Hawk Award.

As usual for our lodge service projects, bring work gloves, water bottle, rain gear, wear work clothes with an Egwa t-shirt and bring your BSA Annual Health and Medical Record, parts A and B.

This event is free but will also mark the launch of the Woodruff Service Corps. This volunteer group will work throughout the year to support the ongoing operations at Woodruff Scout Camp. Bring $5 to this event to pay for your first year’s membership if you would like to join and you’ll receive a special limited edition Founding Member patch.

And yes, we realize this is Mother’s Day weekend and is also bookended by the Lodge Induction Weekends, not to mention graduations, and all other potential conflicts, but this is the date chosen by our council so it is the date we support. It is understandable that many of our Brothers will have personal conflicts and obligations that will prevent them from participating in this event, however for those who are able and willing we will see you there.
