Welcome To CarolinaOA.com

There are 17 lodges that stretch across Order of the Arrow sections SR-5 and SR-7B covering North Carolina, South Carolina and a sliver of Georgia.  CarolinaOA.com is a website built to share and preserve Scouting history and knowledge of memorabilia among Boy Scout collectors.

Each of the lodges represented in the site has a lodge editor(s) who is charged with providing the latest news on issues from that lodge and also helping to pass on the story of the memorabilia issued over the years.
