This is your one-stop source for info on the 2020 SR-7A Conclave, which will be held on the weekend of October 2 – October 4, 2020 at Camp Shenandoah in Swope, Virginia and hosted by Shenandoah Lodge #258.
- The section Conclave is an annual event involving all of the lodges in an established geographic area, called a “section.” The purpose is to train with each other to develop as Arrowmen and as leaders. 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-7A Conclave is an annual gathering of over 1,000 Arrowmen in April at a Boy Scout camp in Virginia. It’s a great weekend of fun, training, competitions, and fellowship!
- Conclave is the biggest and best event of the lodge year! Conclave is a full weekend of activities and experiences designed to take Scouting to the next level. Conclave offers the best opportunity to engage in top-notch training, flawless OA ceremonies, intriguing individual and group Indian dance competitions, and friendly athletic competitions. The weekend is topped off with a Saturday night show and feast, patch trading, and section officer elections. Finally, Conclave is the only event at which lodges can earn the coveted Spirit Award, the hard-fought Quest for the Golden Arrow Award, and the prestigious Lodge of the Year Award. Conclave will have you coming back year after year.
