The National Order of the Arrow Conference is Scouting’s second largest national program event. NOAC is growing in popularity because it is planned and carried out by Arrowmen. Youth involvement ensures the conference will be exciting, relevant, and non-stop fun.
ATTENDANCE: All Arrowmen who are registered members of the Boy Scouts of America and have their council’s approval are eligible to participate in the 2018 NOAC. All participants must register as a delegate of a council contingent or be a member of the conference staff.
Due to expected high interest coupled with capacity constraints at Indiana University, the OA has allotted Lowaneu Allanque Lodge a quota for the 2018 NOAC and is enforcing a 3:1 youth to adult ratio. We have been given slots for 31 Scouts who will be under the age of 21 at the time of NOAC 2018. After these slots are filled, we will institute a wait list while we petition for more slots as they become available.
CONTINGENT CONFERENCE FEE: $625.00 which includes the OA conference fee of $525.00 plus Three Fires Council contingent merchandise and regalia (choices may include hat, daypack, council NOAC patch sets, T-shirts or polos.) This fee does NOT include transportation costs to and from NOAC.**

The weekend was an opportunity for both newly selected and current members to the Order of the Arrow to conduct service at our camp, share in fellowship, and learn more about what it is to be an Arrowman. It is an opportunity for Arrowmen to gather together and celebrate the past year in the lodge, learn more about how you can serve Scouting and the Order of the Arrow and have some fun. Together we did over 1250 hours of service! Congratulations to the 102 new Ordeal Members, 31 Brotherhood Conversions & 1 new Vigil Member! A great weekend!
