National Order of the Arrow Conference

July 29 - August 4, 2024  |  University of Colorado, Boulder, CO

The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is the premier event of the Order of the Arrow and is Scouting's second-largest national event. Over 8,000 Arrowmen from across our nation gather for an inspirational and unforgettable experience full of fellowship, training, adventure, and fun!

Join thousands of Arrowmen from across the country for the OA’s largest event!

During NOAC, Arrowmen will participate in a five-day conference that includes top-notch training sessions, cool recreational opportunities, evening shows full of theatrics and special effects, and exciting programs.

Arrowmen can attend with the lodge contingent or as a staff member supporting the thousands of Arrowmen attending the conference. #NOAC2022 #KNOXROCKS


The registration fee includes the conference fees, housing (university dormitories), all meals, contingent gear (e.g., shirts, socks, patches), return trip special activity (for those traveling), and more. NOAC 2022 is expected to reach maximum attendance capacity so secure your spot early as spaces are limited!

Transportation: Registration options include with and without transportation. Youth who need to travel separately from the contingent will need special permission and parents are responsible for ensuring the youth arrive safely until they meet up with the contingent at the university. The contingent will travel via luxury motorcoach. The estimated departure date is late afternoon on 7/24/22 and returning in the early morning on 7/31/22. Contingent departure and arrival locations will be at the Cockrell Scout Center (2225 N. Loop W., Houston, TX 77008).
