NOAC 2018


 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!

During NOAC, Arrowmen will participate in a six-day conference which includes top notch training sessions, cool recreational opportunities, evening shows full of theatrics and special effects, and exciting programs.

The 2018 NOAC will be held from July 30 -Aug 4, 2018 at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. Arrowmen can travel to NOAC with a contingent from their lodge, or as a staff member supporting the thousands of Arrowmen attending in the conference.

In the coming months you will find everything you need to know about NOAC 2018: how to go, what exciting opportunities await you, and the plans for the conference.

Wiatava Lodge, which is made-up of ten local chapters/districts, forms the contingent that represents Orange County Council at the event.  We will be staying in the dorms at Indiana University.  An adult will be assigned to each youth pair to check in with them every day, making sure they’re up on time in the morning, going to classes, etc.

We will be fundraising to help reduce participation costs for our youth and adult contingent members. After your initial $100 deposit we will accept payments by check or credit card.  Payments at your own pace will be accepted until the final payment due in the spring.

Al Silva is the Lodge Adviser to the Contingent Leader for this event and will work with key members of each chapter to help promote and recruit. Please direct all payments to Al, not the Scout Shops.  Feel free to reach out to TBD, Al, Tom, or Theo with any further questions or concerns.  An email to will go to all four.
