OA High Adventure Area


Experience the sights, sounds, and smells of the Order of the Arrow’s High Adventure programs, held every summer at Philmont, Northern Tier, the Summit, and the Florida Sea Base! Learn more about OAHA activities below and check out this year’s schedule!

Been on an OAHA trek or signed up for one this upcoming summer?Join us at Friday night at 10:30 at the Akela Shelter for the Alumni bonfire. In addition to food and fellowship, you will have the opportunity to share your experiences with some of our national officers and members of the section leadership.

Start off your Saturday right and meet us on the dining hall porch at 5:45 am for a Sunrise Hike. If you don’t consider yourself an early bird, don’t fret! We will be hosting a Polar Bear Plunge at 8:30 am at the water-front (closed-toe shoes required). All participants in both programs will be provided with local Apple Butter Cinnamon donuts and warm hot chocolate. A little later in the morning at 11:00 we will be teaching the training session “ELEVATE Your Backpacking Skills”, more details of which can be found in the training section.

From 1:30 pm – 5:00 pm we will open up our OAHA Area, featuring dutch oven cooking, branding, videos, speakers and special guests, canoe demonstrations and competitions, and a fire to share stories about our High Adventure experiences. From 2:00-4:00 pm, we will have Bear Hill Bluegrass performing, so make sure to check them out! We will also be hosting a conservation project to help give back to Camp Rock Enon.

This year we have a special 3” by 3” sticker for all Arrow-men who participate in our programs. So join us Friday night, hike or swim with us Saturday morning, or give half an hour of service to our conservation project, and pick up your sticker! There are only 500 available, so don’t miss out!”
