Order of the Arrow - Boy Scouts of America
You may have questions about the upcoming changes to adult program participants (those over 18) recently announced by the BSA, and how they impact the Order of the Arrow. National Chair of the BSA Dan Ownby recently addressed these changes, and what they mean (and don’t mean!) for youth Arrowmen between the ages of 18 and 21:
When Arrowmen turn 18, they will be considered an adult, and for youth safety, anyone 18 years old or older will need to register as an adult.
However, young adults between the ages of 18 and 21 will still have voting rights, and can still hold an office within the Order of the Arrow until they turn 21. That has not changed, and there is no plan to change that policy.
