The National Order of the Arrow Conference will be July 30, 2018 – Aug 4, 2018. It will be held at the Indiana University campus in Bloomington Indiana.
NOAC is a national event featuring training, great activities, arena shows, patch trading, and much more. Details about the event are available at the https://oa-bsa.org/pages/content/noac-2018-information or by asking a past attendee.
Registration is only available through the Lodges and you must be a member in good standing to attend. Lakota will be travelling to the event as a group and participate as a group. We will stay in the university dorms and eat in their cafeterias. At this time we expect the fee to be around $600. There is a plan right now for a great side trip which you will not want to miss.
National has provided a limited number of slots for attendance and our registration is now open at https://scoutingevent.com/456-lakota2018noacdeposit Since we can only take a limited number of arrowmen, you will be notified if you have been selected to attend or your deposit will be refunded. (In particular adult attendance will be restricted to one adult per three youth, so adults who really want to attend should consider attending as staff. Youth must be less than 21 years of age throughout the event.)
NOAC is a great experience and a huge adventure. It improves the youth as leaders and the Lodge always bring back skills that make the OA program better for years to come.
PS. One theory says more availability will open up. But why take the chance? Register now.
