NOAC 2022

National Order of the Arrow Conference

The National Conference

Every two years, Arrowmen from across the country gather on the campus of a major university for the National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC).

NOAC is Scouting's second-largest national program event. The reason for its growing popularity can be attributed to the fact that it is planned and carried out by Arrowmen themselves. Youth involvement ensures that the conference program will be exciting, relevant, and non-stop fun.

These gatherings normally draw over 8,000 Arrowmen, traveling from as far away as Europe and Asia, for five days of training, fun, and fellowship. With each conference, NOAC becomes more diverse, more fun, and more exciting.

NOAC has many different aspects making it impossible to participate in every event. Each year events are added and changed so you could go to NOAC every time and do new things each time. The main activities at NOAC include training, ceremonies evaluation, American Indian events, shows, competitions and Founder's Day. NOAC has something for everyone of all backgrounds and all ages. It is definitely one of Scouting's most unique and entertaining training events.

The 2022 NOAC will be held July 25-July 30, 2022 at University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee.


Any registered member of the Boy Scouts of America and the Order of the Arrow as of the conference date can attend. NOAC registration fees include five-night residence hall housing, three meals per day and credentials for access to conference training, program and shows.
