Cardinal Conclave

Conclave is April 19 – 21, 2024!

Countdown to Conclave








The section conclave is an annual activity (before 1972 known as an Area OA Conference) involving the six lodges in Section E8.  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 E8 Conclave is a gathering of over 1000 Arrowmen that occurs once a year in April at a Boy Scout camp in our Section. In short, it’s a great weekend of fun, training, and fellowship!  In 2024, Conclave will be hosted by Wahissa Lodge at Camp Raven Knob! More information will be available as the event approaches. Thanks to everyone who attended in 2023!

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, 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. E8 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 2024. Arrowmen will go head-to-head in competitions such as tug-of-war, relay races, and the illustrious spam toss. 

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