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 10,000 Arrowmen from across our nation gather for an inspirational and unforgettable experience full of fellowship, training, adventure and fun!
Arrowmen attending the 2015 NOAC will get a once in a lifetime souvenir - a reverse colors OA sash! These sashes will differ from those currently worn in that the colors will be reversed, with a white arrow emblazoned on a red sash. Shenshawpotoo Lodge No. 276 will produce a special NOAC patch set, hat, and polo shirt for participants.
During NOAC, Arrowmen will participate in a 6 day conference which includes top notch training sessions, cool recreational opportunities, evening shows full of theatrics and special effects, and exciting programs.
The 2015 NOAC will be held from August 3 - 8, 2015 at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan, and will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow.
