Order of the Arrow - Scoutmaster Minute

In 1915 the Order of the Arrow was founded in Pennsylvania on the land known as Treasure Island in the Delaware River, which up until a few years ago when it was destroyed once again by flooding was a working Boy Scout camp.

The following is a statement from the founder of the Order of the Arrow, E. Urner Goodman that is as true today as it was 97 years ago when it was written in regards to the Order of the Arrow, but it holds true for scouting in general too.

Organization, operational procedure, and paraphernalia are necessary in any large and growing movement, but they are not what count in the end. The things of the spirit count: Brotherhood, in a day when there is too much hatred at home and abroad; Cheerfulness, in a day when the pessimists have the floor; Service, in a day when millions are interested only in getting or grasping rather than giving.

E. Urner Goodman
