The National Order of the Arrow Conference, more commonly known as NOAC, excites Arrowmen across the country. Why you ask? Just ask anyone in our lodge who has been to one, and they will probably say it is among the greatest scouting experiences they have ever had.  The 2015 NOAC will be extra special since it wil be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow.

Imagine for a moment, you and eight thousand of your closest friends, descending on a major college campus (Michigan State University) for six days of brotherhood and fellowship, training and recreation, competition and friendship making. That is what a NOAC is all about!
