National Order of the Arrow Conference

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!

During NOAC, Arrowmen will participate in a five-day conference which 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

NOAC Refund Policy

  2. The registration fee has a $200 non-refundable deposit. Refunded amounts will vary based on monies that have been spent by the lodge in preparation for the event. After 5/25/22, no refunds are allowed.
