Arrowhead Awards

The troop recognizes participation in troop activities with the Arrowhead Award. Upon crossing over from cub Scouting and/or joining the troop, a new scout is presented a leather arrowhead, worn around the neck on a leather thong. Each time a scout participates in a troop or patrol activity, he is presented with a bead to add to the thong.

The beads are color-coded to signify the nature of the activity. These colors are:

Green Camp-out (Troop or Patrol)
Light Green Backpacking Camp-out
Red District Camporee
Large Red State Jamboree
Tan Hike
Orange District Hike-A-Thon
Large Turquoise Summer Camp
Large Green High Adventure Camp (E.G. Philmont)
White District Klondike Derby
Large White State Klondike Derby
Blue Local Parade
Note: There is no bead awarded for service projects, as these activities are done as a "service" 
and not for awarded recognition.
