Totempole  The Meaning of the Camp Phillips Totem Pole
Starting from the bottom of the pole, the bear legs and claws signify the shape of Bear Lake, on whose shores Camp Phillips is located. "Happy Sun" in legs of bear means a new awakening on the shores with high spirits in early rising of Phillips Scouts. The Big Mouth is the smile of happiness of boys for the bountiful outdoors and of nature's fish and game. The turtle in the mouth signifies the abundance of food for body and mind. Happy Chief is for the camp staff and adult leaders encircling arms and legs for protection and leadership. The symbols of the Chippewa and the Sioux Indians recognize the Order of the Arrow ceremonies. The face in the Chippewa Indian's mouth depicts the bottle for food and land between the Indians on Bear Lake. The Boy Scout in summer camp with short sleeve shirt and the business suit of Mr. Louis E. Phillips encircles in the scout handclasp. This signifies the profound interest in scouting for Mr. Phillips, the camp founder and benefactor. At the top of the pole, the wing symbolizes the highest rank of the Boy Scouts, that of Eagle. The wing is 12 feet long to represent the 12 points of the Scout Law.

"He alone is worthy to wear the Arrow who will continue faithfully to serve his fellow man" - E. Umer Goodman
