Benefits of NOAC


The National Order of the Arrow Conference 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. Youth involvement ensures that the conference program will be exciting, relevant, and non-stop fun.

As you promote the conference to your lodge membership and plan the details for your lodge's involvement in conference activities, keep in mind the many benefits that are likely to accrue for your lodge and its members. Lodge members will return home with:

  • A deeper understanding of the Scout Oath, Scout Law, Order of the Arrow Obligation, and what it means to "live" these words in one's daily life.
  • A renewed spirit, pride, and enthusiasm for Scouting and the Order of the Arrow.
  • Ideas their lodge can use to better serve Scouting in their home unit and council.
  • New program ideas, knowledge, and skills to improve the lodge.
  • Increased leadership skills and a better understanding of how to carry out the work of the lodge.
  • The latest information on camping and high- adventure programming, including how to successfully promote Boy Scout camping.
  • New friendships with fellow Arrowmen from throughout the country.
  • Memories to last a lifetime.
