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.

Scout Challenge 2019
Egwa Challenge

Once again, our lodge has been tasked by our council to support a council encampment. Scout Challenge 2019 is the council camporee that will be held March 22-24 at Bert Adams Scout Camp. We have been asked to conduct a “Patrol Challenge” event modeled after the OA Great Race that we conducted for the Council Centennial Campout100 in 2016. This time it will be called “Egwa Challenge” and it will have a smaller footprint and be conducted in a shorter competition timeframe than the OA Great Race. We will be conducting the Egwa Challenge from 9 AM to 4 PM Saturday on the backside of Camp Gorman in the general area of the rifle/shotgun ranges.

Our event planning committee has identified a need for approximately 100 Brothers to serve as game and support staff to allow us to successfully conduct this program. There is not a lodge fee for serving on the Egwa Challenge staff and there will be an Egwa Challenge staff t-shirt.

There are three options available for our Brothers willing to help staff “Egwa Challenge”;

    1. Register with your unit, pay participant fee, attend with unit for meals and housing, and serve on Egwa Challenge staff on Saturday.
    2. Register with Scout Challenge 2019 as staff, pay staff fee, utilize staff housing and meals, and serve on Egwa Challenge staff on Saturday.
    3. Pay no fee, show up Saturday morning, serve on Egwa Challenge staff, go home after breakdown/pack-up of event. (Bring your own lunch)

No matter which option you choose, you will need to register with the lodge as event staff at http://www.aacegwa.org/register.htm just follow the prompts and register as staff for Scout Challenge 2019, there is no fee to register, but it is essential that everyone register so we will know who is going to be staffing the event.

The Atlanta Area Council Campmaster Corps is a group of experienced Scouters who support weekend camp activities at the Atlanta Area Council camp properties, Bert Adams, Woodruff and Allatoona Aquatics Base. Members of the Campmaster Corps have a working knowledge of the BSA Outdoor Programs, the Patrol method, Troop and Unit operations and general knowledge of the aims and objectives of the Scouting Outdoor Program.

Campmasters spend the weekend at the Atlanta Area Camp Properties in a comfortable cabin with simple amenities (kitchen, cooking utensils, private bathrooms, and beds) while providing service to Units camping at the property during the weekend. Typically, weekend duties begin when the Campmaster arrives on Friday and end on Sunday around noon (after the units have left the camp or when the Ranger says it is okay to leave). Campmasters can request their weekend and amount of service and some Campmasters serve as husband and wife teams for the weekend.

During the weekend, Campmasters are a visible presence at the camp property, visiting the Units at campsites and program facilities to provide assistance, ensuring the safety and security of the Units and camp property by inspecting facilities and campsites at various times.

During a typical weekend, Campmasters will:

  • Check units into camp and collect rosters.
  • Interact with the Unit Leaders to provide Commissioner-type service and other assistance as requested.
  • Assist the Camp Rangers with special projects when requested.
  • Help ensure camp policies are being followed by visiting units, campsites and camp facilities.
  • Provide unit leaders with outdoor program and facility assistance to enhance the unit’s camping experience.
  • Assist Rangers and Units during emergency situations.
  • Check units out of at the end of their stay.
