National OA Conference (NOAC)
Stay tuned for information regarding NOAC 2020 to be held at Michigan State University.
July 30 – August 4, 2018
Indiana University, Bloomington, IN
For those of you who have never attended NOAC, it is the premier event of the Order of the Arrow and is Scouting’s second-largest national event after the Jamboree. Our Lodge historically brings one of the largest contingents to NOAC. In 2018, several thousand Arrowmen from across our nation are expected to gather at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, from July 30 through August 4.
At NOAC, you will gain a deeper understanding of what it means to “live” the words of the Scout Oath and Law each day; a renewed spirit, pride, and enthusiasm for Scouting and the Order of the Arrow; innovative ideas and new training to better serve Scouting at all levels; enhanced leadership skills for carrying out our Lodge’s work; new friendships with Arrowmen from across the country; and memories which will truly last a lifetime. You will participate in a wide variety of spirited OA shows, sporting competitions, ceremonial training and competitions, camping and high-adventure promotions and training, patch trading like you’ve never seen before, and much, much more.
