How to Apply

Note: You must have a passport to participate in the OAWV: Canadian Odyssey. If you do not presently have a passport, apply for one before you submit your application (you can do so at any post office). It takes about seven (7) weeks to get a passport. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A PASSPORT WHEN YOU REPORT, YOU WILL BE SENT HOME, AS IT WOULD BE ILLEGAL FOR YOU TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CANADIAN ODDYSSEY WITHOUT A PASSPORT. Complete the application, have it approved by either your Scout Executive or Lodge Staff Adviser, and receive parental permission if you are under age 18. Mail your completed application and $50.00 deposit to:

Order of the Arrow
Boy Scouts of America
P O Box 152079
Irving, TX 75015-2079

Upon approval, the OA will notify applicants by email of acceptance on a first-come, first-served basis. (Every effort will be made to give participants their first choice.) Beginning in January (2014), a packet of materials will be sent to you, preparing you for your experience. Applications will continue to be accepted until all slots are filled. A waitlist will be maintained until all slots are filled or applicant requests a refund of their deposit.

The application is available below in Adobe PDF format. You'll need to print it out, get it filled in and signed, and then mail it to the National Office.
