JULY 25-30, 2022
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 6,000 Arrowmen from across our nation gather for an inspirational and unforgettable experience full of fellowship, training, adventure, and fun! Keep a watch on the National NOAC website for more information.
During NOAC, Arrowmen will participate in a six-day conference which includes top notch training sessions, cool recreational opportunities, evening shows full of theatrics and special effects, and exciting programs.
The 2022 NOAC will be held from July 25-830, 2022 at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Arrowmen can travel to NOAC with a contingent from their lodge, or as a staff member supporting the thousands of Arrowmen attending in the conference.
We are expecting to have a number of interested members from the Lodge wanting to attend NOAC. There is plenty of room for all to attend regardless of being a youth or an adult, though National preference is more youth than adults in our contingent. UT and the OA are also prepared to host female and male youth program participants.
Conference Fee Details
The proposed NOAC conference fee set by national is $545.00. The total estimated fee for NOAC 2022 will be between $750 – $1000 which includes transportation and lodging if necessary. The Lodge actively works to raise funds to reduce the cost for youth participants. The final cost to each participant will be determined prior to the event after fundraising has been completed and trip logistics are finalized. Registration will be completed through the National Online Registration System (NOERS), which will open in October 2021.
The National Order of the Arrow Committee believes that the national conference is one of Scouting’s best program values. The conference fee covers all meals, lodging, insurance, transportation service at the conference site, and programs during the conference.
If you are and interested in participating at NOAC 2022, please let us know in advance. Lodge leadership will be in contact with all those interested in attending.
