Cardinal Conclave

Conclave is April 22nd – 24th, 2022

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!  In 2022, Conclave will be hosted by Nayawin Rar Lodge at Camp Tuscarora! More information will be available as the event approaches. Thanks to everyone who attended in 2021!

What's New for 2022

In 2022, we plan to return to a traditional model as held in years past. The cohort model, though successful in 2021, was primarily to create a more COVID-friendly Conclave. 


  • OAX Villages: Though the overall cohort model will not be used, we will use an iteration of this format for OAX, with OAX Villages! Several hubs will be established to appeal to the wide interests of our Section’s Arrowmen. Planned villages include: Shooting Sports, Cooking, STEM, AIA, The Great Outdoors, and Trade School.
Why should I attend Conclave?

Conclave is the largest event of the lodge year! Conclave is a full weekend of events such as the outdoor programs, fantastic training opportunities, competitions, Individual and Group Dance Indian Affairs 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.

Quest for the Golden Arrow

The Quest for the Golden Arrow will be back and better than ever in 2022. We plan to return to the traditional format rather than the cohort model in 2021 that occurred due to COVID-19 precautions. 

All youth Arrowmen (under the age of 21) that participate are eligible to represent their lodge and compete.
