 The Historic Traveling Camporee is a three-day weekend adventure by chartered bus, and is an event designed to expose our Boy Scout youth and leaders to, and expand their knowledge of, our country’s heritage. It is fun, educational and one-of-a-kind ~ one of Scouting’s mountaintop experiences. Out of almost three hundred councils across the United States, Northeastern Pennsylvania Council is the “ONLY” Boy Scout Council to host biennial Traveling Camporees on a regular basis. How many opportunities do YOU have to participate in a weekend Camporee by bus?

The Order of the Arrow (OA) 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 was recognized as the BSA's national brotherhood of honor campers and became an official part of the national camping program of the Boy Scouts of America. Today, the OA is recognized as Scouting's National Honor Society.

191 flap Lowwapaneu Lodge #191 is the Order of the Arrow lodge of the Northeastern Pennsylvania Council. Formed by the merger of Amad 'ahi Lodge #542 and Acahela Lodge #223 when the Forest Lakes Council and Penn Mountains Council merged.
