National Order of the Arrow Conference
Date: 7/28/2018 - 8/4/2018
Location: Indiana University - Bloomington, Indiana
NOAC is an event that is similar to the Boy Scout Jamboree, but for OA members only. We stay in the university dormitories. Meals are in the student dining facilities, so there is plenty of time for fun and activities. NOAC is open to all active Arrowmen, but space is limited by the capacity of the university. NOAC only happens every two years. We would love to have you join us!
Wauna La-Mon’tay Lodge has a tradition of a “fun day” before NOAC. Our plan for this adventure will be planned by the youth leadership of the Lodge, and details will be made available in the future.
Cost: Because registration costs, airfare, and our tour expenses have not yet been determined it is too early to set a firm price. For family budgetary purposes NOAC will probably not exceed $1500. (Adults pay the full fee and historically our Lodge has been able to provide a subsidy for the youth attending, making the youth’s fee slightly less.)
There are only 37 spots currently allotted to our Lodge for youth and 12 for adults.
- Youth Members: The youth spaces will be filled on a first come first served basis. A waitlist will be available when all of the spaces are filled. A $100 deposit is required to hold a space for youth.
- Adults Wanting to Attend: Scouting, the OA and NOAC are intended to be programs for our youth. Due to expected high interest from youth, coupled with capacity constraints at Indiana University, the Order of the Arrow has instituted a Lodge quota for the 2018 NOAC and are strictly enforcing a 3:1 youth to adult ratio. Wauna La-Mon’tay Lodge will be selecting adults based on their level of current and future involvement with the Lodge. Our goal is that NOAC serves to inspire and train our future Lodge Leadership. A committee of Youth and Adult Lodge leaders will select the Contingent Adults. A waitlist will be in effect for all adult spots. The 12 adult spaces will be filled from the waitlist in the Fall of 2017. There is no deposit needed for adults to be added to the waitlist.
