What is ArrowCorps5?
The Order of the Arrow has had
a long-standing interest in coordinating a national service project,
utilizing the infrastructure and leadership established over many
years of success at the Boy Scouts of America's high adventure bases.
Working closely together, the United States Forest Service and the
OA have chosen five project sites, spread across America, that will
be the focus of our combined efforts. ArrowCorps5 (pronounced
Arrow Corps Five) will provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
for each participant to set an example of leadership in service
to those who treasure our national forests.
Five thousand physically fit and
able Arrowmen (determined by the "Philmont
Weight Limits for Backpacking & Hiking"), made up of youth and
adults, will participate. The national Order of the Arrow committee
and key sponsors will fund the projects. Participants will pay a
reasonable fee to help pay for accommodations, meals, and a full
day of recreational activities during the projects.
