National Order of the Arrow Conference

An Experience Unlike No Other!

Approximately every two years, the Order of the Arrow holds a national conference (NOAC) on the campus of a major university. NOAC is our flagship national event, held over six days with 6,000 – 8,000 Arrowmen participating from throughout the BSA. The conference program includes innovative leadership development, programs, fellowship periods, and inspirational shows.

The National Order of the Arrow Committee is hosting the 2024 National Order of the Arrow Conference (N.O.A.C.) at the University of Colorado Boulder, in Boulder, Colorado, from July 29 – August 3, 2024, and the Ahoalan-Nachpikin Lodge is thrilled to be sending a contingent!

Why Attend the 2024 National Order of the Arrow Conference (N.O.A.C.)?

NOAC is a week-long experience unlike any other in the Order of the Arrow, and Scouting in general, with innovative training opportunities in the morning, large-scale activities in the afternoon, and professionally produced evening shows! In the past, there has been a helicopter landing, competitions ranging from ceremonies to a triathlon, patch trading, a conference-wide festival and much more.


The theme for NOAC 2024 is “Seek New Heights” as we climb into the Rocky Mountains from July 29 to August 3, 2024, at the University of Colorado Boulder. When we step onto campus, we will join a growing spirit of thousands of our fellow Arrowmen from across the country as we celebrate the OA and set our sights on new heights.
