The Northeastern Pennsylvania Council Scout Shop is well stocked with all of the Scouting program items that you may need. From awards to uniforms to that Special Occasion Scouting gift , we've made a concerted effort to have a complete inventory and are carrying more items than we ever have before. We continue to work very hard to have the items you'll need to run you program in stock and available when you need them. And, if for some reason we're out of an item, it won't be very long before it's in. Inventory is replenished frequently and that means we probably have whatever you need in stock. It's our commitment to you to have what you need, when you need it!

Northeastern Pennsylvania Council is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing strong character, good citizenship, and promoting physical fitness in the youth of this region. Your financial gift in any amount ensures that Scouting's 100 year tradition of serving youth will continue here in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

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.
