The Order of the Arrow is Scouting's National Honor Society. For more than 100 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.

Lenaphoking Lodge helps Northern New Jersey 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.  Lenapehoking Lodge operates under a charter granted by the National Council, BSA, and must apply annually for its renewal.  The Boy Scouts of America will grant a charter to only one lodge per council. Lenapehoking Lodge is supported by four Chapters that include all Districts of Northern New Jersey Council.

2018 Vigil Nominations are Now Open

Each year, the Lodge strives to recognize its most worthy member with the Vigil Honor. The Vigil Honor is a high mark of distinction and recognition reserved for those Arrowmen who, by reason of exceptional service, personal effort, and unselfish interest, have made distinguished contributions beyond the immediate responsibilities of their position or office to one or more of the following: their Lodge, the Order of the Arrow, their Scout Camp, or Scouting in general. Membership in the Vigil Honor cannot be won by the conscious endeavor of an individual. It comes as recognition of unselfish leadership in service.

Nominations for the Vigil Honor are now open and can be submitted at http://bit.ly/2018IXVigil
