NOAC 2022

July 25, 2022 @ 6:00 am - July 30, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

- $100.00 – $225.00

National Order of the Arrow Annual Conference
July 25-30, 2022
University of Tennessee

For those of you who have never attended NOAC, it is the premier event of the Order of the Arrow and is Scouting’s second-largest national event after the National Jamboree. The theme for NOAC 2022 is Tomorrow Begins Today. In 2022, several thousand Arrowmen from across our nation are expected to gather at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville during the week of 25-30 July.

At NOAC, you will gain a deeper understanding of what it means to “live” the words of the Scout Oath and Law each day; a renewed spirit, pride, and enthusiasm for Scouting and the Order of the Arrow; new ideas and new training to better serve Scouting at all levels; enhanced leadership skills for carrying out our Lodge’s work; new friendships with Arrowmen from across the country; and memories which will truly last a lifetime! You will participate in a wide variety of spirited OA shows, sporting competitions, ceremonial training and competitions, camping and high-adventure promotions and training, patch trading like you’ve never seen before, and much, much more.

Currently, there are no quotas on each Lodge, but as always, we want to maximize youth participation. Our goal is to fill our bus rental with at least 50 Shenandoah Arrowmen…so please register as soon as possible to reserve your seat!

The cost to attend NOAC is comprised of two parts – the base event fee (food, housing, and activities while at the event) and contingent fee (round-trip bus transportation and SWAG).


The Base Event Fee is the amount that National charges the Lodge to register attendees. In order to make attending NOAC more affordable and to provide Arrowmen and their families more flexibility in making payments, National is offering a tiered pricing system for 2022.

Early Bird Pricing: $575.00
Sign up and pay the total base event fee of $575 by December 12, 2021 and you will receive the lowest rate. **This equates to a commitment to attend, and the entire payment is NON-REFUNDABLE.** An additional contingent fee will be due later (see Contingent Fee below).

Regular Pricing: $625.00
If you sign up and pay after December 12th, OR do not want to commit for the early bird pricing, you will pay the regular price for the base event fee. The Lodge will charge a $100 non-refundable deposit as part of an overall payment plan. An additional contingent fee will be due later (see Contingent Fee below).


$TBD. This fee is for contingent transportation and SWAG (patches and t-shirts; possibly neckerchiefs, hats, bags, and/or water bottles) is still being determined.

The GOAL of the contingent leadership is to keep the final/overall cost at $1,000.00 or less. The contingent will explore various fundraising opportunities to reduce the cost as much as possible.


1. Payment in full at time of registration is acceptable, but for those who wish to make incremental payments, we suggest the following schedule:

Early Bird Delegate Fee PLUS Contingent Fee:
Payment #1 – $100 deposit (non-refundable)
Payment #2 – $475 due by Dec 12, 2021 (non-refundable)
Payment #3 – Contingent Fee due by May 15, 2022

Payment #4 – $225 due by Apr 15, 2022
Payment #5 – $225 due by May 15, 2022 (maybe adjusted due to final contingent fee)
