National Order of the Arrow Conference

Experience like No Other

Approximately every two years, the Order of the Arrow holds a national conference (NOAC) on the campus of a major university. NOAC is our flagship national event, held over six days with 6,000 – 8,000 Arrowmen participating from throughout the BSA. The conference program includes innovative leadership development, programs, fellowship periods, and inspirational shows.

In 2024, we will host our 35th NOAC at the University of Colorado Boulder. NOAC is a great way to learn more about the Order of the Arrow and opportunities that exist in the OA, Also meet Arrowmen from across the country, and have a great time!

About the University of Colorado Boulder

Founded in 1876, the University of Colorado Boulder is one of Colorado’s prominent universities. Located in Boulder, CO, it spans 786 acres and is home to over 35,000 students. Its nine colleges provide over 150 areas of study. ‘The Buffafloes’ or ‘Buffs’ take their nickname from when the university newspaper called their students, “Buffaloes”. While this is not the first time NOAC has been held in Colorado, this is the first time CU Boulder has hosted.


Delegate conference fees are paid through your lodge contingent and include five-night residence hall housing, three meals per day (starting with dinner on Monday evening and ending with breakfast on Saturday morning), and credentials for access to conference training, program, and shows. In some cases, additional costs may be required for special activities or events. These costs will be reflected when program registration opens in early April. Lodges generally assess additional fees for transportation and other ancillary expenses.
