The Centurion Award

INTRODUCTION 

For nearly 100 years, the Order of the Arrow has purposefully recognized Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. Therefore, our organization’s centennial provides a unique opportunity to commemorate those among us who are exemplars of the “high ideals and purpose of the Order of the Arrow.” The Centurion Award aims to highlight “Hometown Heroes,” or Arrowmen who have meaningfully contributed to the forming, maturing and ongoing operational excellence of their local council’s lodge, and who, in doing so, inspired others to follow in their footsteps.

What is ArrowTour? A delegation of youth Arrowmen will be spending next summer traveling to council camps and Scouting events, in order to bring a once-in-a-lifetime experience to Scouts, Arrowmen, and communities around the country. ArrowTour will include opportunities to reflect, connect, and discover the Order’s Centuries of Service, both past and present. A sample of the programs being offered:

  • Activities: Silk screening, hat/belt branding, and recreational games.
  • Service: ArrowTour Team service project, alumni outreach to benefit local councils.
