July 30 - August 4, 2018
The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is the premier event of the Order of the Arrow, and is Scouting's second-largest national event. Over 8,000 Arrowmen from across our nation gather for an inspirational and unforgettable experience full of fellowship, training, adventure, and fun!
During NOAC, Arrowmen will participate in a six-day conference which includes top notch training sessions, cool recreational opportunities, evening shows full of theatrics and special effects, and exciting programs.
Arrowmen attend with our lodge contingent, or as a staff member supporting the thousands of Arrowmen attending the conference.
Due to expected high interest coupled with capacity constraints at Indiana University, the National Order of the Arrow Committee instituted a delegation size limit. Colonneh Lodge has been allotted 57 slots for youth members. A waitlist will be used for those registering after our initial slots are filled and Colonneh Lodge will request additional slots based on interest from our Arrowmen to attend NOAC 2018.
In addition to a limitation of contingent size, a 3:1 youth to adult ratio is being enforced. Therefore, adults interested in attending NOAC 2018 with Colonneh Lodge will be required to fill out an application to attend as an adult contingent member. A selection process similar to 2015 will be used to determine those adults that will be able to attend NOAC 2018 with Colonneh Lodge.
The contingent fee for Colonneh Lodge members attending NOAC 2018 will be $800 plus the cost of travel. The anticipated cost of travel is $500 per person. Colonneh Lodge will subsidize youth contingent member fees by $200 for a total fee of $1,100 for youth and $1,300 for adults.
The payment plan will work on an installment basis. A $200 non-refundable deposit will be required at the time of registration and there will be 9 monthly payments beginning October 1, 2017, with the final payment due on June 1, 2018. Anyone registering after October 1, 2017, will need to pay the deposit and all past due monthly payments at the time of registration. Failure to keep the payment schedule may result in the forfeiture of your contingent spot. Any refunds will be subject to the SHAC refund policy.
