Every year, the six lodges of Section SR-7A come together for a weekend of fun and fellowship — the Conclave. This event, held in April, is an exciting weekend for Arrowmen of all ages.

Saturday morning of the Conclave, there are a variety of training cells available — ranging from serious topics to help develop Arrowmen as leaders to the light-hearted.

Saturday afternoon, there are games and quest events. The day concludes with the Saturday night show.

The lodges of our section take turns hosting the conclave. The current rotation began in 1998 when Tutelo Lodge hosted the first SR-7A conclave. Blue Heron Lodge hosted the conclave in 2007 and 2013 and will host it again at Pipsico Scout Reservation in 2017 (Blue Heron and Nawakwa swapped the years 2017 and 2019).
