2024 NOAC

Calling all Arrowmen!

July 28th – August 4th, 2024

The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is the flagship National Order of the Arrow event. It is held every 2 years at a major university campus and is attended by as many as 8,000 arrowmen from all 50 states. It is second only to the BSA National Jamboree in size and scope. The largest conference was in 2015, attended by more than 15,000 Arrowmen to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Order of the Arrow.

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.

NOAC 2024 will be held at the University of Colorado Boulder, July 29th – August 3rd, 2024. 

Arrowmen will meet at the MVC Scout Office early Sunday Morning, July 28th, 2024, where they will board a large passenger van and start their journey to Colorado. Sunday afternoon, they will have made their way to St. Louis, MO and will take a tour of the Gateway Arch. From there, they will be staying the night at Theodore Naisch Scout Reservation in Kansas City, KS. On Monday morning, they will continue on their way and arrive at the University of Colorado Boulder early Monday evening. After NOAC, August 3rd, they will start making their way home and arrive back to the MVC Scout Office late on Sunday, August 4th, 2024.
