Fellowship

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines fellowship as follows,

  1. a community of interest, activity, feeling, or experience
  2. a company of equals or friends
  3. the quality or state of feeling of friendliness, goodwill, and familiarity among the people in a group

This definition perfectly defines the Order of the Arrow. The OA is a group of Scouts and Scouters who have been selected by their peers as those who best exemplifiy the three points of the Scout Oath and the twelve points of the Scout Law. We share a love of the outdoors and a dedication to service to others. 

Fellowship takes on many forms in the Order of the Arrow, but members gather frequently, from the Chapter level all the way to the National level. Some of these events have specific purposes, such as training or service, but they all include fellowship.
