NOAC

NOAC 2020 is coming!

The 2020 National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) will be one of your most memorable Scouting experiences. NOAC 2020 will be held at Michigan State University from August 3rd – August 8th, 2020.

NOAC will feature a number of unique events including national competitions for ceremonies, drum, and dance; evening shows; the OA history museum; and awesome recreation competitions such as soccer, basketball, and Ultimate Frisbee. Highlights such as the Founder’s Day festivities including the Founder’s Day Parade, the Grand Hodag, and the inter-region dodge ball battle are some of the exciting events at NOAC.

Arrowmen can participate in service projects, high adventure opportunities, leadership training, American Indian Activities training, and much more. While enjoying the various activities, Scouts will have a great time meeting new brothers and sharing their experiences with people from around the nation.

Our lodge will send a contingent to NOAC 2020 and you won’t want to miss out. Visit www.event.oa-bsa.org for more information and to learn about NOAC 2020.   Chumash currently has a contingent of 25 spots allocated. These will be filled on a first come first served basis based on receipt of your reservation fee.

Chumash Lodge is organizing a contingent and will travel to and from the conference by air. The estimated fee for the conference is $1200- $1,400. This fee will cover:

  • Air and ground transportation to and from the conference
  • Meals at the conference
  • Lodging before and during the conference
  • Souvenir package including t-shirts and 2020 NOAC patch sets
  • National Order of the Arrow Conference Fee

Final costs to be determined by February 28, 2020 based on costs of airfare, ground transportation, and if an intermediate night of lodging before the conference start day is required. The Lodge will also be fund-raising to help defray some of these expenses.  In an effort to support the National Policy of two-to-one youth to adult ratio, we are asking that any adult requesting to attend NOAC as a member of the contingent recruit at least two (2) youth members when submitting their application.

We are accepting deposits of $200 due by October 1st, 2019 to reserve a spot. The full balance is due by May 1, 2018.
