Countdown to Conclave








The section conclave is an annual activity (prior to 1972 known as an Area OA Conference) involving the six lodges in Section SR-7B.  Each conclave is led by section youth officers elected from among the member lodges at the previous year’s conclave, and the event itself is prepared in cooperation with various other lodge officers, and with one lodge serving as the “service lodge”.

The SR-7B Conclave is a gathering of over 1200 Arrowmen that occurs once a year in April at a Boy Scout camp in our Section. In short, its a great weekend of fun, training, and fellowship!  The 2013 Conclave at Camp Durant set an attendance record with 1701 registrations.

Why should I attend Conclave?

Conclave is the largest event of the lodge year! Conclave is a full weekend of events such as the OAXperience, fantastic training opportunities, competitions, Individual and Group Dance Indian Affairs Competitions, Indian Affairs Singing Competitions, Section Elections, Ceremony Competitions, Patch Trading, Nightly Shows, the always anticipated Quest for the Golden Arrow, Lodge Cook-Off competitions, the Spirit Award Competition…as you can see the list keeps going on and on. On top of all this, you’ll get to hang out with your friends and meet other brothers from all over our Section. SR-7B has one of the largest Conclaves in the country each year.
