2015 NLS Registration Now Open

The National Leadership Seminar (NLS) is a weekend training program focusing on leadership development. Run by the Region Chief and his Advisers, it provides an in-depth look at leadership skills and techniques. An NLS discusses how these skills can be applied in your role in the OA and in other aspects of your life. It is intended primarily to enhance the leadership skills of the Order of the Arrow’s key youth and adult members as they seek to improve their services to the Boy Scouts of America and the greater community.

This year there will be two National Leadership Seminars hosted within Section W-1N. One on November 20-22, 2015 at Camp Pigott, WA and the other on June 3-5, 2016 at Camp Carlquist, AK.

Registration is now available online here:

NEXT: A New Century

The 2016 national event, NEXT: A New Century, will be truly unlike anything the Order of the Arrow has ever seen. Youth leaders from across the nation will gather at Indiana University from July 30 to August 3, 2016 in order to learn, grow and be inspired as we proceed into a new century of service. This hands-on, high-energy event will focus on membership, program and innovation at the local level, which will subsequently empower participants to return home and be powerful agents of change.
