JOIN US FOR THE BEST EVENT OF THE YEAR!
What is Conclave?
Conclave is the annual gathering of the three lodges in Section W-1S for a weekend of fellowship, fun, training, and the selection of new section officers.
Why Should I Attend?
Conclave is one of the largest Scouting events in the area. You will be able to meet Arrowmen from around the section, attend unique training sessions, participate in fun activities, and so much more.
What Does Conclave Offer?
Whether you are a new Arrowman attending your first ever conclave or an experienced Arrowman attending your 20th, conclave has something for you. From top-notch training sessions and fun activities, to exciting shows and great food, you will not want to miss out.
Join nearly 400 Arrowmen from 3 lodges for a weekend filled with fellowship, activities, shows, service, and much more!
Training is a big part of conclave. Saturday morning is dedicated for Arrowmen to learn something new to take back to their chapter, lodge or unit. With dozens of unique classes covering a wide range of topics, every Arrowman has a chance to learn something new.
Saturday afternoon is packed with fun and engaging activities. Common activities include inflatables, outdoor games, tomahawks, sash cab, obstacle courses, sports, competitions, and concessions like cotton candy, snow cones and popcorn.
Conclave features two shows packed full of fun, inspiration, and excitement. We kick off the weekend with our opening show on Friday night, getting Arrowmen excited for the weekend. On Saturday night, we wrap up the weekend with the closing show, featuring awards, a weekend review, and the annual theme show.
Our silent and live auctions will be full of patches, memorabilia, and so much more. The proceeds from the auctions help fund year-round section programs.

It wouldn’t be a Scouting event without great food. Our conclave cook crews work tirelessly through the weekend to provide great tasting and nutritious meals for all our participants and staff.
We have special programs just for new Arrowmen. If you have completed your Ordeal since the last conclave, then you can attend conclave as a “Very Important Arrowmen,” or VIA. As a VIA, you receive a $5 discount on your conclave registration and can attend a special program called the VIA Luncheon, where you will meet with special guests from the section, region and maybe even national Order of the Arrow.
One of the most important parts conclave is the section officer elections. The Arrowmen of Section W-1S gather and decide who will lead the section for the next year.
