National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC)
August 3 - 8, 2020
Michigan State University

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! NOAC 2020 will be held at Michigan State University from August 3 through August 8, 2020. The 2020 National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) will be one of your most memorable Scouting experiences.

NOAC will feature a number of unique events, including national competitions for ceremonies, drum, and dance; evening shows; the OA history museum; and awesome recreation competitions such as soccer, basketball, and ultimate Frisbee. Highlights during the Founder’s Day festivities include the Grand Hodag, and the inter-region dodge ball battle.

Arrowmen can participate in service projects, high adventure opportunities, leadership training, American Indian Activities training, Ceremony training, and much more. While enjoying the various activities, Scouts will have a great time meeting new brothers and sharing their experiences with people from around the nation.

While at NOAC your mornings will be filled with training and afternoons will be filled with fun. You’ll be living in a college dorm and eating college food. For some of you this will be a new experience; for others, it may bring back fond memories. While there are many who will say that it’s “like a Section Conclave on steroids” or a “mini-Jamboree for OA members,” most will agree that it’s a one-of-a-kind experience and that each OA attendee will have his, or her, own experience and tale to tell.

Our Lodge is currently planning how to get there and to accommodate the needs of our members. Our lodge will send a contingent to NOAC 2020, and you will not want to miss out as the next one will not be till 2022. To sign up, complete the NOAC registration form and return with a $100 deposit.

Due to the advance planning, staffing and purchasing necessary to conduct a quality Scouting activity, the following policy is in effect regarding refunds:

A $100 initial registration fee is required, of which is non-refundable (but transferable to a new delegate attending) payment to the national OA office. National fees are not transferable to another participant's balance. Please make sure to get your form and deposit in by October 1st.
