Welcome to the Wipala Wiki lodge website!

Wipala Wiki lodge is the Order of the Arrow lodge for Grand Canyon Council. While our council headquarters are in Phoenix, we have roughly 1600 members making us one the largest in the country both in membership and geographically. We have members all around the state of Arizona. Our lodge was formed in 1950 and is going strong 68 years later. Our lodge makes up one-fourth of Section W-6W, and is apart of the Western Region.

This new website layout is to help new members and their parents learn more about our lodge. If you have any questions or need to find anything, try a search up top, and if you don’t find what you are looking for, please contact the web team.

If you have questions about our lodge, please contact our Lodge Adviser, Ken Adams.
