What is Conclave?
Conclave is a little like the National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC), a little like Pow Wow, and a little like Camporee. While at Conclave you have the opportunity to take classes about the Order of the Arrow from a multitude of topics such as: General Studies, Indian Affairs, Leadership and Program, Outdoor Adventurer/Camp Promotions, and New Arrowmen. Each time you attend you are able to receive a degree from Arrowmen University and with each attendance you advance. You start with an Associate Degree then can get a Bachelors, and even a Doctorate degree. The classes available are on the back of this booklet. You also can participate in some competitive games as a lodge just like NOAC where we will compete against the other three (3) lodges in the W 4S Section. Once again another way to show Wiatava is #1. If games aren’t your forte by all means still come. We have competitions for dances and ceremonies, and if you don’ t know how to dance, come to learn. To finish off the Conclave, we all get to enjoy an Evening Show and even show some spirit.
What do I need to do to sign up?

What if I don’t get out of school till late Friday?
By all means come right after, or even show up Saturday Morning!
What if I just joined the Order of the Arrow?
If you just joined then why not start your OA life with a bang? This is one of the biggest events that we attend as a lodge and it’s a great way to meet new friends.
Does this count toward the Arrowman Service Award?
Yes it does. This is actually the last chance anyone for anyone to get this patch. Because this year is our 100th Anniversary, National started this patch and the great thing about it, it’s a patch that you can wear ON your sash.
