The Order of the Arrow operates locally through lodges. Buckskin Lodge is the local chapter is the local chartered organization of the Order of the Arrow and is tied directly to the Theodore Roosevelt Council. The Lodge was formed in 1949 from the Buckskin Sons of Wauwepex, a camp program formed in 1923 for Scouts interested in native American lore and culture.

The purpose of lodge activities is fourfold and based upon the following:

  1. To recognize those scout campers who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Scout Law in their daily lives.
  2. To develop and maintain camping traditions and spirit.
  3. To promote scout camping.
  4. To crystallize the Scout Habit of Helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others.
