"The Land of Fire"

    Lo La'Qam Geela Lodge of the Order of the Arrow provides community service, promotes camping, and helps build leadership in its members within Central and Southern Oregon as well as Northern California. We are founded upon the ideals of brotherhood, cheerfulness, and service.

    Within our lodge, seven chapters exist: Amangi Kuwe (Big Pines District), DaGelMa (Roaring Rogue), Hyas Lamonte (Fremont), Klamath, Mow-A-Toc, Siskiyou, and Warner Mountain. Each chapter should be your local guide to the OA. We encourage you to attend these chapter meetings to get the latest scoop on upcoming events
