  • 2018 NOAC

    The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is the premier event of the Order of the Arrow, and is Scouting’s 2nd largest national event. In 2018, Arrowmen from across our nation will gather from July 30 to August 4 at Indiana University.


    Attendees will enjoy numerous classes, games, competitions, and exhibits with the latest camping and outdoor equipment. There will also be a trading post and patch trading. Unlike the National Jamboree, you will stay in the dorm rooms and eat in the cafeterias while at the event.


    If you are interested in joining the Lodge’s NOAC contingent for this exciting adventure, be sure to download our deposit form and follow the directions. The cost to attend is $600. Fee includes: housing, food, and program activities for the entire conference, plus a contingent t-shirt and flap set. However, transportation costs are not included.


    Unfortunately, due to expected high interest coupled with capacity constraints, National will be instituting a quota for the 2018 NOAC and enforcing a strict 3:1 youth-to-adult ratio.
