Order of the Silver Marmot - Created in the late 1920's, it existed at Camp Parsons in the Chief Seattle Council in Washington as a honor camper society until it was replaced by the OA in 1953. The Silver Marmot is still given out today for service to the camp as staff or volunteer and for high adventure treks in the Olympic Mountains. The OA Lodge there is Tope Kwis Kwis Chinook. Camp Parsons has been in continuous operation since 1919.
