About Us

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. History

The Order of the Arrow was founded by Dr. E. Urner Goodman and Carroll A. Edson in 1915 at the Treasure Island Camp of the Philadelphia Council, Boy Scouts of America. It became an official program experiment in 1922 and was approved as part of the Scouting program in 1934. In 1948 the OA, recognized as the BSA's national brotherhood of honor campers, became an official part of the Boy Scouts of America. In 1998, the Order of the Arrow became recognized as Scouting's National Honor Society when it expanded its reach beyond camping to include broader service to Scouting and the community. Structure

The Order of the Arrow has three distinct organizational levels; lodges, sections, and regions. Learn more about these areas below. Leadership

The Order of the Arrow is led by youth leadership (national chief, national vice chief), the national Order of the Arrow chairman, the OA director and the OA specialist. In addition the national Order of the Arrow committee provides direction for the yearly program. For Arrowmen

Edson, the OA emphasizes servant-leadership in troops, at the council or lodge level, and nationally.

Your son now has the opportunity to take part in all Order of the Arrow activities, Order of the Arrow High Adventure, local leadership roles, and opportunities for community service.

The Order of the Arrow is Scouting’s national honor society. Its membership fulfills the Order’s purpose of recognizing those who exemplify Scouting’s values, promoting responsible outdoor adventure, developing young leaders, and crystallizing the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others. Established in 1915, the OA emphasizes service to the unit. In this way, Arrowmen give back to their troops with the leadership skills and values of service learned through the Order. The Order’s program complements the troop’s, providing valuable leadership training programs, world-class high adventure opportunities, and exciting national conferences. Members of the Order of the Arrow are chosen through an election process at a troop meeting. To get your unit introduced to the Order of the Arrow, contact your local lodge and arrange for an elections team to visit. For Community Members

The Order of the Arrow, or “OA,” is a service organization and the national honor society of the Boy Scouts of America. Members are elected from within their units and recognized as those who best live the ideals of brotherhood, cheerfulness, and service. Under the guidance of selected capable adults, OA members under 21 provide leadership to the organization. Edson, the OA emphasizes servant-leadership nationwide in nearly 300 Boy Scout councils. In addition to local community service, the OA provides service on a national level, too. In 2008, for example, the Order of the Arrow improved five national parks during an event called “ArrowCorps5.” In 2013, the OA coordinated days of service at the National Scout Jamboree, resulting in significant service to the Mount Hope, West Virginia area.

Anderson and Sons | American Fork UT funeral home and cremation


Craig Norton McDaniel was born on May 10, 1952 and passed quietly on September 29, 2020.

He was born at American Fork Hospital, Utah to Minnie A. Farnsworth and Norton 0. McDaniel and was taken home to Alpine, Utah. His older brother Milon was already on board. Two sisters, Caren and Judy and one more brother, Byron would join the family. McDaniel is a familiar name in Alpine and the families lived close to each other. Craig grew up with cousins and aunts and uncles nearby. He also grew up hiking, exploring, and hunting with his brothers, cousins and father in his beloved mountains above his home.

Craig attended the local schools in Alpine and American Fork. While attending American Fork High School, he played football, wrestled, and was involved in the DECA program. Craig was awarded Most Valuable Lineman in 1969-1970 for football. For his participation in DECA, he was given a trip to the DECA conference held in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Craig learned the value of work in various ways, but perhaps his best learning experience happened on the farm above his home. His uncle owned the farm and Craig along with Milon, Byron and his cousin Kirk helping at times, Craig ran the dairy farm. He milked cows, hauled hay, moved sprinkler pipe, fixed machinery and did all the jobs associated with a working farm. Summer months were busy with long days. Craig did not appreciate cows, but he learned the value of patience, thinking through problems and finishing a task. These traits would serve him well in his life.

Craig attended BYU and worked towards a degree in Business Management. He attended school on campus and lived at home. During the college summers, he worked in McCall, Idaho, with his brother Milon as a surveyor for the Forest Service. He wanted to be a smoke jumper, but when he went to apply for the training, he saw two guys with crutches sitting outside the smoke jumping office. They both had broken their legs smoke jumping. Craig decided to stay with surveying.

One fateful summer, he decided to stay home to find summer employment. His next-door neighbor had a date arranged for him, a fishing date. Craig and Kathy Carter met in June. They were engaged in August and were sealed in the Manti Temple in December. On the way to Manti, an essential engine part in the car stopped working. Craig had to find the auto parts store, get the emergency number, get the store owner to open, and sell him the part. He rolled up the sleeves of his white shirt and in the middle of a snowstorm, but with a new part and they proceeded to Manti. Kathy taught at American Fork Junior High and Craig finished his schooling at BYU. They lived in a house, a basement apartment, and a condo until 1977 when they moved into their present home the day their oldest son Adam turned one year old. Craig and Kathy would have been married 47 years in December.

Craig had various jobs after graduation: he sold insurance, he finished cement, he was a manager at Luther's BBQ, he sold cabinets at Oscar E. Chytraus, and he had his own appliance business; Baker's Appliance. Finally, he found his niche. He was hired on December 9, 1985 to work for Waxie Sanitary Supply. At Waxie he was a salesman, general manager, sales manager and retired from the company as a General Manager for the Western Region. In 2009, Craig helped dedicate the new Waxie Salt Lake City building. In 2015, Craig helped celebrate Waxie's 75th anniversary. Craig retired from Waxie on June 20, 2017. Kathy and Craig had wonderful opportunities to travel with rewards from Waxie. Who knew selling toilet paper could get you a trip to Hawaii?

Craig was active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served as a scout master, in the young men's program, a counselor to Bishop Lamonte J. Dansie and the Bishop of the American Fork ward. While Craig was having dialysis three times a week for three months, he had the opportunity to listen to all the standard works save the last few chapters in the New Testament. A tender mercy in a not so tender situation.

Craig was also a scouter. He attended Wood Badge in the year of 1981 and his life was changed. After that course, he took all the scouting training courses that were offered. He achieved his ordeal, brotherhood, and vigil in the Order of the Arrow. After years of service Craig was awarded the Silver Beaver. He continued his scouting adventures being a merit badge counselor and finally creating his own web site and participating in adult scouting activities. His favorite place was "working with the boys." Craig attended six National Scout Jamborees, often with his dear friend Larry Gordon.

Two wonderful boys were born to Kathy and Craig: Adam (1976) and Kenton (1981). During Adam and Kenton's school years, Kathy and Craig attended football games (at times three a week) wrestling matches, choral concerts, scouting activities, and church activities.

Craig enjoyed staying in touch with his brothers and sisters. Byron's tragic death in November of 1982 further deepened Craig's commitment to his family. He and Kathy enjoyed going to Los Hermanos with Caren and Lynn and Lynn's barbequing talents, driving to Judy and David's, and enjoying the beauties of Glenwood Springs, Colorado and visiting Milon and Joyce in Caldwell, Idaho. Craig's cousin Kirk was his other brother. Kirk and his wife Jan lived two blocks from Craig and Kathy, and they enjoyed activities together. Memorial Day at the Alpine City Cemetery was a time of visiting with family members and "catching up."

Craig was preceded in death by his parents Minnie A. McDaniel and Norton 0. McDaniel, his in-laws, Karen and George Carter, his brother Byron McDaniel, and his aunts and uncles. He is survived by his wife Kathy, sons Adam (Marti) and Kenton (Mika) and seven exceptional grandchildren: (ladies first) Megan, Brooklyn, Eleanor, Olivia, and Pearl and two exceptional grandsons Connor and Andrew. Craig loved his grandkids and his boys and their wives. He is also survived by seventeen amazing nieces and nephews, sister Caren (Lynn) sister Judy (David) and brother Milon (Joyce), brother-in-law Steve (Mary) and brother-in-law Kim (Linda) and cousin Kirk (Jan). Family activities were a priority for Craig and Kathy and there are lasting memories of our association with our dear ones.

Lots of love to our dear friends and neighbors. Thank you for your service to our family. Thank you to our 33rd ward family. You are the ultimate ministers! Instead of flowers, please, please donate to a charity of your choice. Now is the time for us to give.

It is with a heavy heart I write this post.
Yesterday Craig McDaniel passed away.

Craig and Kathy were key supporters of the tu-cubin noonie lodge. They sponsored and supported as well as hosted our annual lodge auctions for 25 + years.

Craigs family all served in lodge leadership positions, from lodge adviser, lodge chief, vice chief and mom scout.

Our hearts go out to Kathy, Kenton and Adam as well as other family during this time.

Kathy thank you for sharing Craig with us. He impacted more young men than you will ever know.

Please pass along condolences on craigs page.

Craig thanks for all your leadership in service

Order of the Arrow Adult Interest Survey | Crossroads of the West Council, BSA

Dear Tu Cubin Noonie Lodge member,

Thank you for your hard work and devotion to the Order of the Arrow! 2020 will be a year for the record books for a variety of reasons!

To update you, Dillan Otterstrom (lodge chief) and Tom Otterstrom (lodge advisor) have met with their respective counterparts in the other two lodges, Ken Jeppesen (new lodge advisor), and myself. The process of creating a set of rules by which the new lodge will function is making good progress and fully under way. Great progress has been made in moving the three existing lodges to a merger. For your information:

1. El Ku Ta, Awaxaawe' Awachia, and Tu Cubin Noonie lodges will formally merge sometime in the fall of this year (the formal merger date will be announced soon). Lodge elections will take place at a formal gathering (date and location TBD). Chapters under the new lodge will not be formalized until the merger of the lodges so as to ensure continuity in continuing forward in the current/existing chapter and/or lodge calendared events, inductions, and etc.
2. Lodge rules and a 2021 calendar will be finalized in the coming weeks and sent for formal approval to Allen Endicott.
3. Creating a lodge structure designed to support a large geographical area is the prime goal. There will be opportunities for both youth and adults to serve in the structure of the new lodge - from chapter to committee to lodge.
4. The youth Lodge Chiefs presented ALL of the suggestions for a totem and lodge name. Rest assured, if you suggested a lodge name and/or totem, it was presented in the meeting. After initial discussion and narrowing the list down, I am pleased to announce the lodge chiefs have determined and recommended the following to Allen Endicott, supreme chief of the fire.

i. Lodge Name: Where Paths Cross

ii. Lodge Totem: Bobcat

1. The translation of the lodge name into a Native American language is under way. As you might imagine, the process of selecting a name in a native American language must be handled with the utmost respect, guidance, and general approval of the respective Native American tribe the name is chosen from.
2. If you are an adult member of the Order of the Arrow, and desire to serve in a lodge and/or chapter capacity, please take a moment to answer some questions so that the new lodge leadership might be more informed as to your desires, willingness, and preferences as decisions to recruit adult advisors will begin to happen. Click to https://www.utahscouts.org/oasurvey to complete the survey.

In the interim, it is hoped you will continue to support your current chapter and lodge as the transition into a merged lodge continues.

Thanks again for your service to the Arrowman of your lodge. Keep up the good work!


Josh Haacke
Lodge Staff Advisor

Scouting is fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today and for life.



It is my honor to introduce to you our new lodge adviser, Ken Jeppesen.

I have served with Ken since 2006, and learned to value and trust his insight and friendship.

Ken has served in many capacities in Scouting, most recently Vice President of program for Trapper Trails Council. He has also served as Lodge Adviser, Section Adviser, and Lodge Chief.

Ken and his wife Linda have 9 children. Their 4 sons are Eagle Scouts, and have served in many capacities in scouting, including Lodge chief, vice chief, and chapter leadership. Ken values the scouting program and he sees the importance of what the Order of the Arrow brings into the lives of each of us.

I know we are in the best capable hands while we combine three lodges into one. Ken will have to make tough decisions that WILL affect all of us, but I know these decisions will be balanced and fair for what is best for the Lodge.

Please get behind me and the Lodge chiefs, in supporting Ken, it is up to us to ensure the combining of Lodges goes smoothly.

We all took an obligation and part of it says “to be unselfish in service and devotion to others”. This merger affects not just our lodge, but 2 others, and we are all one lodge now. This merger is about all of us, Let’s help Ken make this Lodge a Legacy to Scouting and Arrowmen every where.

Yours in Brotherhood,
Tom Otterstrom

Hello fellow Arrowmen,

Yes, the Service Day scheduled for this weekend (June 8) at Camp Eagle Mountain is still happening!

Everyone is invited to this Service Day to help prepare Camp Eagle Mountain for Summer activities. This project is an important part of the support we give the Council Summer Camping program. Since Camp Eagle Mountain is the newest of the Council Camps, there is a long list of projects waiting to be tackled.

We will be removing the lower limbs on some trees to open up access to the shade under the trees. When you come, bring gloves, a tree or shrub pruner, or a chain saw. All those will be helpful in tackling the pruning tasks. Marking your tools will help them make their way home with you!

We will meet at the Scout Office at 7:30 AM on Saturday and make our way to camp as a group. We will return to the Scout Office by 3:00 PM. The Lodge will be providing lunch.

Let’s show the Council that we can help make the camps a better environment for all Scouts!

General information

In 1915, Camp Director E. Urner Goodman and Assistant Camp Director Carroll A. Edson searched for a way to recognize select campers for their cheerful sprits of service at Treasure Island Scout Camp in the Delaware River. Goodman and Edson founded the Order of the Arrow when they held the first Ordeal Ceremony on July 16th of that year. By 1921, as the popularity of the organization spread to other camps, local lodges attended the first national gathering called a Grand Lodge Meeting. The Order of the Arrow was one of many camp honor societies that existed at local Scout camps across the country. As the years went on and more camps adopted the Order of the Arrow’s program, it gained prominence and became part of the national Boy Scout program in 1934. By 1948, the OA, recognized as the BSA's national brotherhood of honor campers, became an official part of the Boy Scouts of America. Toward the end of the twentieth century, the OA expanded its focus to include conservation, high adventure, and servant-leadership. Throughout the years, the Order of the Arrow has played an integral role in the program of the Boy Scouts and in the community service its members contribute to their communities. To date, more than one million people have been members of the Order of the Arrow. Presently, the Order of the Arrow consists of nearly 300 lodges, which form approximately 48 sections in four regions. Leadership positions and voting rights are restricted to members under the age of 21. Through the program, members live up to the ideals of brotherhood, cheerfulness, and service set forth by E. Urner Goodman and Carroll A. Edson. Last revised on December 19, 2013
