Muscogee Chapter/Shelby District

Muscogee Chapter – Crew 50

The Muscogee Chapter of  Coosa Lodge is composed of Arrowmen from the Shelby District of the Greater Alabama Council.  Our Chapter is registered as Crew 50 and sponsored by the Camp Tranquility Preservation Association.  Our Chapter Totem is the rare and endangered “Alabama Red-Bellied” Turtle.  It was chosen as it symbolizes both our State and the beginnings of the Order of the Arrow with Unami Lodge One at Treasure Island Scout Camp.  The first OA Totem was the Turtle.

We meet on the first Thursday of each month at Riverchase Church of Christ located at 1868 Highway 31 South in Pelham, Alabama. All Arrowmen are invited to attend out meetings which begin at 7:00 p.m.  Ceremony Teams, Native American Regalia, Indian Lore, and Brotherhood Preparation, are just a few of the fun activities you will find at our meetings.  We will also be planning some of our upcoming service projects, like hosting the Shelby District Camporee campfire, Scouting for Food, and serving at the District Banquet.  Come join the fun as we celebrate the Tenth Anniversary of Coosa Lodge.

Our Chapter Advisers are:

Mr. Christopher Arnold – Chapter Adviser (
