Order of the Arrow - Wauna La-Mon'tay Lodge
Wauna La-Mon'tay Lodge of the Order of the Arrow is an integral part of the programs of Cascade Pacific Council. Members of Wauna La-Mon'tay provide thousands of hours of service every year to Cascade Pacific Council's camps and members. From Community Service Projects to serving on outstanding Camp Staffs, our lodge's Arrowmen make up the best youth our council has to offer.
The purpose of the Order of the Arrow is fourfold:
- To recognize those Scout campers who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives
- To develop and maintain camping traditions and spirit
- To promote Scout camping
- To crystallize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others

NOAC (National Order of the Arrow Conference) 2020
NOAC is an event that is somewhat similar to the Scouts BSA Jamboree, but for OA members only. We stay in university dormitories. Meals are in the student dining facilities, so there is plenty of time for fun and activities. NOAC is open to all active Arrowmen and only happens every two years. Wauna La-Mon’tay Lodge has a tradition of a “fun day” before NOAC. Our activities for this adventure will be planned by the youth leadership of the Lodge and details will be made available soon. We would love to have you join us! (8/1/20 - 8/8/20) Cancelled
