What is NOAC?
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. In 2022, several thousand Arrowmen from across our nation are expected to gather at the University of Tennessee for a week of training, fellowship, and fun! To learn more about NOAC, visit the NOAC webpage!
What to expect?
For many, this will be the first experience for scouts to stay in dorms on a college campus, plus, they will get to experience campus food!
Participants will have the opportunity to meet and receive training from the top scout presenters in the nation on topics relevant to their positions in the OA, Scouting, and their troop. There will be evening shows where thousands of Arrowmen will gather and strengthen their bonds of brotherhood. There is plenty to do with all of the Activities, Recreation, and Competitions available.
Activities: Escape rooms, Shark Tank, Game shows, talent shows, Lip Sync Battles, and your general yard games.
Recreation: 5k, Swimming, a Triathlon, Golf, Patch trading, and Video games
Competitions: Flag Football, Ultimate Frisbee, Gaga ball, Basketball, Mascot Mayhem, and OA Jeopardy
