The Section W-4S High Adventure Program Scholarship was created in hopes to provide monetary support to Arrowmen within the section by paying a partial or full scholarship to one of the Order of the Arrow High Adventure Programs at Philmont Scout Ranch, Northern Tier, and the Florida High Adventure Sea Base.
It is the purpose of the section to provide for the Arrowmen of W-4S in hopes to enlighten their Order of the Arrow experience through participation in one of these programs. All programs are the epitome of what the OA represents Brotherhood, Cheerfulness, and Service. It is for this reason that Section W-4S and its leadership find it so imperative to not only support these programs but to also offer financial assistance to the Arrowmen of the Cahuilla, Ta Tanka, Tiwahe, and Wiatava lodges to help pay for the program costs.
Although it is not a requirement to be an active member in the order of the Arrow to participate in any of the OA High Adventure Programs, the Section High Adventure Scholarship is reserved for those individuals who exhibit interest and service as well as a future commitment to the Order of the Arrow in their home lodges. It is expected of the recipients to continue their service in the OA as well as bring their enthusiasm gained from these programs back to their home councils, lodges, chapters, and units. These recipients are an inspiration to other arrowmen and welcome opportunties to openly discuss their experiences.
