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 10,000 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, recreational opportunities, evening shows full of theatrics and special effects, and exciting programs.
The 2015 NOAC will be held from August 3-8, 2015 at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan, and will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow. Arrowmen will travel to NOAC with a contingent from their lodge.
In the coming months you will find everything you need to know about NOAC 2015: how to go, what exciting opportunities await you, and the plans for the conference. Follow OA-BSA on Facebook to stay up to date with information and announcements.

Arrowmen attending the 2015 National Order of the Arrow Conference will get a once in a lifetime souvenir, a special edition red sash. These sashes will differ from those currently worn in that the colors will be reversed, with a white arrow emblazoned on a red sash.

Plans are just starting for the OA event of the century, but you can save your seat. A deposit of $100.00 will reserve your spot!
The overall cost* will be approximately $1250 (youth) and $1350 (adult), this will include:

  • Event fee
  • transportation and meals
  • T'kope KwisKwis contingent pack**
*The final price may fluxuate until the airfare is purchased.
**This may include patches, T-shirt, pins and other items as voted by the youth leaders in the coming months..
***Payments can be made in installments. Final Payment will be due by February 28, 2015
****any scout who wants to sell popcorn to raise funds for NOAC can receive a full 50% of the popcorn sales. Contact the lodge leadership for details.

We need your designs for patches, pins, shirts and anything else you want on the trip. If you have ideas for T'kope KwisKwis items, please send them to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by December 2.

ArrowCorps2014 A Huge Success!
Friday, 08 August 2014 12:00

crosscut_sawFor 7 days in August 35 members of the T’kope Kwiskwis Lodge participated in ArrowCorps 2014, continuing the legacy of ArrowCorps502 and the other projects that came before it.

Three crews of Arrowmen completed projects within Mount Rainier National Park and the surrounding Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, while joining in shows and friendly competitions back at Camp Sheppard.

Strike Team Paradise A led by Cameron Devine traveled to the Paradise picnic area for grounds cleanup and trail maintenance projects, cutting back brush that had crept uncomfortably close over the past decade. Paradise B crew led by Leland Shields also performed trail work along the Wonderland Trail near Reflection Lake. Their work included using weed whips to clear encroaching bush fro the trail and learning how to operate a crosscut saw. As one crew member said, “the view was spectacular and we made it better”. Outside the park, Crystal Mountain Strike Team led by Matthew Gates, nickname the “pickup-stick crew” engaged in seed collection for re-vegetation efforts and cleaning up sticks at a local visitors center for fire prevention and visual beautification. After 2 days of irksome tasks the crew got out on the trail for boardwalk maintenance and trail improvement.

At camp, attendees were entertained by the Lum’s who performed songs each night and led teams in friendly competitions of physical strength and wit. The running theme of the week, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, was incorporated in all the games and encouraged horrid English accents for the rest of camp.

By the end of the week scouts dreary from lack sleep and hard work yet energized by great food from the kitchen crew left behind the work gloves and hard hats for recreation activities like field games at camp and hiking around Sunrise. All in all, ArrowCorps2014 was a huge success, with over 620 volunteer service hours completed. We look forward to continuing our service in 2017!

ArrowCorps2014

arrowcorps20142Greetings Brothers;
I hope you are enjoying this beautiful summer weather and are able to spend time with your family and friends. I also hope you have some great summer Scouting Adventures planned for this season as well.
If you do not have ArrowCorps on your calendar, there is still time to sign up. Service to others is at the core of the mission of the Order of the Arrow. What better way to provide public service and have fun than to spend a week in Mt. Rainier National Park or the surrounding National Forest.
You can register on line through the Lodge website at tkopekwiskwis.org. The cost is $250, which covers about everything. Please remember that we also have some Camperships available, everyone should be able to attend. ArrowCorps2014 is open to ALL BSA registered people 14 and above.
Hope to see you at ArrowCorps 2014.

YIS
