Lodge Ledger: New online registration for OA High Adventure as easy as 1, 2, 3

By Chris Boyle

The OA High Adventure program has a long history and tradition within the Order of the Arrow by offering a life-changing experience for a fraction of the cost. Arrowmen from all over the country are now able to register with ease with the online OAHA registration system that was released earlier this year.

After deciding which program you want to experience this summer, simply browse to adventure.oa-bsa.org to begin your registration process online! Click your desired base, and be sure to read all the requirements before filling out the application.

Step 1: Log on to adventure.oa-bsa.org and ensure you meet all of the requirements. Once you have seen you meet all of the requirements, fill out the online form with all of your information, such as your name, age and desired date. You will need to have the approval of your local Scout Executive or his designee, so be sure to give him a heads up! After completing the application, submit it through the website along with your $50 deposit.

Step 2: Fill out the application completely, and submit that along with your deposit through the online system. After your application has been submitted, you will receive a confirmation email and the national office will request your council approval. Once they receive council approval you will receive an email confirming your reservation dates and your accepted application. The online registration system will allow you to pay the remainder of your program fee at this point.

Step 3: Book transportation, and get ready for a life-changing experience! Once you have paid for your confirmed program, you are ready to book travel arrangements. Be sure to use your program dates as reference during this process.

We hope that many of you will take advantage of this new, easy-to-use system! These programs are a great way to visit the high adventure bases at a reduced price, also allowing you to meet Arrowmen from around the country and offering a life-changing experience all in one!
