National Events

Some of the most exciting elements of the the Order of the Arrow program are the Order’s spectacular national events. These provide excitement, inspiration, fun, and lasting benefit to OA members and Scouting.

National Order of the Arrow Conference

The National Order of the Arrow Conference is the premier event of the Order of the Arrow and the Boy Scouts of America’s second-largest national event. During NOAC, Arrowmen participate in a six-day conference that includes top notch training sessions, cool recreational opportunities, evening shows full of theatrics and special effects, and exciting programs. Arrowmen can travel to NOAC with a contingent from their lodge or as a staff member supporting the thousands of Arrowmen attending the conference. The next NOAC will be held in 2020 at Michigan State University.
