Chumash Lodge 90′s mission is to fulfill its purpose as an integral part of the Boy Scouts of America through positive youth leadership under the guidance of selected capable adults in the Los Padres Council #53.
The Order of the Arrow is recognized as Scouting’s National Honor Society. Each local Boy Scout council is encouraged to have an Order of the Arrow lodge. Each lodge is granted a charter from the National Council, BSA, upon annual application. The OA lodge helps the local council provide a quality Scouting program through recognition of Scouting spirit and performance, development of youth leadership and service, promotion of Scout camping and outdoor programs, and enhancement of membership tenure.
Chumash Lodge 90 History
The Chumash Lodge 90 was created when the Mission Council, which served Santa Barbara County and Santa Lucia Council, which served San Luis Obispo County merged to form the Los Padres Council in January 1994. The Chumash Lodge #304 from the Santa Lucia Council and the Canaliño Lodge #90 from the Mission Council were combined to form our new lodge, Chumash Lodge 90 which serves both San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties. The name of one lodge and the number of the other lodge were used to form the new lodge name, Chumash Lodge 90. This new name gives members from each of the former lodges a sense of ownership in the new lodge name.
