Colonneh Lodge is one of the largest Order of the Arrow lodges in the United States with over 3,400 members. It was founded in 1938 to serve the Sam Houston Area Council by providing cheerful service to packs, troops and crews throughout the area.
The Order of the Arrow is the national honor society of the Boy Scouts of America. Founded in 1915 as an organization dedicated to recognizing those Scouts and Scouters who best exemplified the ideals of Scouting, today the Order of the Arrow has over 170,000 members in approximately 300 lodges throughout the country.
