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.

Brother Service at Ordeals

Brothers,

Our lodge has a long history of service to our camps and this spring at both Ordeals, Woodruff and Bert Adams, we are asking our Brothers to participate in continuing this tradition of service. At both camps we have service projects planned that are “above and beyond” the usual candidate projects. Projects include installing a Yellow river outpost, maintenance and repair around camp, and even painting. Anyone who has ever seen candidates paint know why we are asking for Brothers to step up for this important step in preparing for summer camp. These projects all share a requirement for skills and abilities that generally exceed those of the typical Ordeal clan.

We are also looking for adult project managers to supervise Ordeal projects. These project managers’ primary responsibility will be to coordinate with the Elangomats to insure that assigned clan projects are completed to the Ranger’s satisfaction and any tools/equipment properly cleaned and placed for pick-up.

Brothers participating in these service projects will accrue service hours that will count towards the “Service to Scouting” requirement of the 2017 Service Hawk award along with Totem Ticket service beads. More information about the 2017 Service Hawk award can be found at http://www.aacegwa.org/awardsandhonors.htm

The Woodruff Scout Camp Induction Weekend will be May 5-7, 2017 with a registration deadline Monday, April 24th.

Additional information may be made available as the planning and preparation develops the projects and details are finalized.
