Achewon Nimat 282 is the Order of the Arrow Lodge of the San Francisco Bay Area Council, Boy Scouts of America. The Lodge was formed in the early 1960’s by the merger of Machek N’Gult Lodge 375 (Golden Bear totem) and Royaneh Lodge 282 (Indian Chief totem). The first meeting & gathering of Achewon Nimat was held on Sunday afternoon, December 13, 1964 at Goodman’s Restaurant in Oakland’s Jack London Square and was attended by over 300 members. The banquet and lodge elections marked the official start of the new “as yet to be named lodge” of the San Francisco Bay Area Council. Almost 10 months earlier in February of 1964 in a ceremony held atop Yerba Buena Island in the middle of San Francisco bay, the Oakland Area Council and the San Francisco Council would merge forming the San Francisco Bay Area Council thereby uniting 30,000 Scouts from both sides of the bay. With the merging of the two councils, so too would the Order of the Arrow Lodges associated with the former councils, Machek N’Gult Lodge of the Oakland Area Council and Royaneh Lodge of the San Francisco Council. Although the beginning of the lodge started on that afternoon of Sunday, December 13, 1964, our history in the Order of the Arrow actually began some twenty years earlier in 1944 when Royaneh Lodge was officially formed in the San Francisco Council and then three years later when Machek N’Gult Lodge was formed in the Oakland Council. Our lodge is now called Achewon Nimat (meaning Brothers Together), but our real beginnings in the Order of the Arrow started at a camp in the hills of Oakland called “Camp Dimond” and at a camp near Cazadero called “CC Moore” (Camp Royaneh).
