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 69 years later. Our lodge makes up one-fourth of Section W-6W, and is apart of the Western Region.

If you have questions about our lodge, please direct them to our volunteer Lodge Adviser, Ken Adams.
