What is "NOAC"?
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).
These gatherings draw nearly 6000 Arrowmen, traveling from as far away as
Europe and Asia, for five days of training and fellowship. With each
progressing year, NOAC becomes more diversified, more fun, and larger than
the previous year.
NOAC has many different aspects and it is impossible to participate in every
event in one year. Each year more events are added and changed so you can go
to NOAC every time and probably not do anything twice. The main activities
at NOAC include ceremonies evaluation, training, Native American events,
shows, 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.
