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.
Kittatinny Lodge has chartered a 40-passenger Motor Coach to transport our contingent to and from NOAC 2022. Let’s fill the bus !!!
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.

LODGE FEES: The Lodge actively works to raise funds to reduce the cost for youth participants transportation through a series of patch auction fund-raisers. We will have an auction at the Centennial Banquet, as well as in Spring 2022. The final cost to each participant for transportation and incidentals will be determined prior to the event after fundraising has been completed and trip logistics are finalized. In past years, we have been able to raise enough to cover the full cost of transportation for the youth, and will try to do so again in 2022. Funds raised will also help with a basic set of flaps and CSPs and other items decided upon for our contingent uniforms. Adult participants will be expected to pay their fair share of bus transportation costs.
HOW TO REGISTER — Please be sure you read and understand the payment options above. Registration should then be completed through the Council’s online registration system at: https://scoutingevent.com/528-noac2022
Once registrations and payments are received by our council, they will be entered into the National Online Event Registration System (NOERS), which will open in October 2021. Once a participant is registered through NOERS, additional information will be required and event options made available at appropriate times leading up to NOAC.
WE ARE ENCOURAGING ALL TO PAY THE DISCOUNTED FEE IF YOU ARE CERTAIN YOU WIL BE ATTENDING. PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU PAY THE DISCOUNTED FEE, THERE IS NO REFUND UNLESS THE EVENT IS CANCELLED.
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.
Other options for participating at NOAC 2022

Staff will pay the same fees as participants but register themselves through NOERS with the approval of the Scout Executive, and will need to make their own transportation arrangements.
