Our Response to COVID-19

Conclave is a great place to make new friends and be inspired to go back home and REIMAGINE the ways we strengthen our units, lodges, and communities. In order to do that, though, we need to be healthy so we can help others, and this includes taking precautions to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Today, the Southern Region Section Seven A leadership team, in consultation with the leadership of Shenandoah Lodge and Virginia Headwaters Council, has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 SR-7A Conclave to October 2-4, 2020 at Camp Shenandoah.

While this was a tough decision, we believe it is the right one, and it has been made out of concern for our members, volunteers, guests, and community. Our top priority is always the health and safety of everyone involved in our events.

It’s been over three decades since a Virginia Conclave has been rescheduled, and we know you’ll have questions about what this change means for you and your lodge. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to make this change as smooth as possible.

We love the SR-7A Conclave just as much as you do. It is Virginia’s marquee OA event, and we are sad that we will have to wait to be able to watch a sea of Arrowmen gather in the fields of Camp Shenandoah to celebrate our brotherhood. However, we remain excited about Conclave and look forward to seeing you on October 2-4!
