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.

The focus of this service project trail building and maintenance in the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.

  • 1pm-4pm -PM work period

Alternate Lodge Day of Service
Saturday, October 8th, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Eastview Cemetery, 56 4th Ave. SE, Atlanta, GA 30317

This is a good alternate opportunity for anyone wanting to be of service in our community, but the October 15th date is a schedule conflict and/or trail work on the river is just a little too strenuous. We have been asked to help with the fall clean up at a local community cemetery, primarily raking and bagging leaves.

Times;

  • 9:30 am - 10:00 am - Registration

  • 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm - Lunch

Bring work gloves, water, and a sack lunch. Also bring leaf rake if available.
Adults may choose to bring a gas blower.

Participants will earn the 2016 Lodge Day of Service patch and Egwa Totem service beads.
