Cascadia Chapter

For New And Prospective Members

Welcome to the Cascadia Chapter. 

As the Order of the Arrow Chapter serving the Cascadia District, located in Portland, Lake Oswego, and Scappoose, we host and assist with numerous events for units, the District, the Council, and the Lodge.

We attend and assist with all Wauna La Mon’tay Lodge events, such as Rendezvous, WICC (Wauna Inductions and Ceremonies Conference), and all Induction weekends. As a Chapter, we additionally provide service to the Cascadia District when it has its annual Camporee, and assist Packs and Troops in holding crossover ceremonies each spring for the Webelos to cross over into a Troop.

As the Order of the Arrow is a service-oriented organization, we hold a multitude of service projects throughout the year, including a monthly service project benefitting a local city park, recreation area, or greenspace. We hold these projects not only for our members, but also for the units in the district that we serve to give them an opportunity to get out into their communities and give back.

I encourage you to explore everything the Chapter and the Order of the Arrow have to offer to your Scouting experience and life. I look forward to seeing you at a Chapter or Lodge event soon!

Yours in Brotherhood,

Jack Lighthipe

Chapter Chief, Cascadia Chapter

The Cascadia Chapter of Wauna La-Mon'tay Lodge provides service to the city of Portland, Lake Oswego, and the area along the Multnomah Channel north to St. Helens. We function as the Order of the Arrow outlet and service corps to the Cascadia District (hence the name) and the units therein. Through thousands of hours spent in service projects and activities to benefit the local community and Scouting program, the Cascadia Chapter is a thriving brotherhood of cheerful service who pride ourselves on exemplifying the Scout Oath and Law.

The Chapter meets every month, on the second Thursday at 7:00 p.m., at Community of Christ Church in Laurelhurst. We lead a service project on the third Saturday of each month at 9:00 a.m. Contact the Chapter Chief, Chapter Advisor, or Service Advisor for more information.
