Register Now for Trip to NOAC in July

Are you a member of the Order of the Arrow?

Do you like to travel? Do you want to have the time of your life with 8,000 other Scouts at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee?

If so, you should consider attending the 2022 National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) with Patriots’ Path Council’s Woapalanne Lodge. For the uninitiated, NOAC is the Order of the Arrow’s biggest event; it is typically held biannually on the campus of a major university.

This year’s conference will take place from July 25-30, but the PPC adventure will begin with a road trip in vans departing from New Jersey on July 23. On the way to Tennessee the group will get to spend the night at the Summit Bechtel Reserve, the home of the 2023 National Scout Jamboree, and participate in some of its high adventure activities.

The fun will truly begin once the group arrives at NOAC! Participants will attend professionally produced stadium shows, participate in training sessions conducted by some of the Order of the Arrow’s premier trainers, participate in fun activities and competitions ranging from volleyball and Spartan races to Native American dance and ceremonies.

The Conference Festival on Friday afternoon is always a good time and will be even more engaging in 2022. The Conference Festival is a chance for lodges to share what makes their lodge and home states special through a booth, giveaways and activities. Most importantly participants will get to meet Arrowmen from all across the country and build relationships that will last a lifetime.

To hear more about what’s in store at this year’s NOAC, follow the conference social media pages on Instagram and Twitter @OANOAC and like the Facebook page, “NOAC,” and be some of the first to hear the specific details of various programs as they are announced.

Space is limited.  Sign up today at (A $100 deposit is necessary to hold your space.)  The anticipated cost of the trip is $1,100.
