Top 20 Things to Do at Conclave

Conclave is one of the greatest events an Arrowman can attend. It is the only time each year where we come together as an entire section. Hundreds of Arrowmen gather for a weekend of fun, fellowship, reflection, learning, and excitement. Every conclave is a little different, ensuring that there is something for everyone, from the newest Ordeal member to the most seasoned conclave staffer.

While packed full of fun, conclave can also be overwhelming with so much going on. We want everyone to make the most of their time at conclave so we have compiled a “top 20” list of things to do at conclave this year to help guide your conclave experience.

Activities at Conclave

Afternoon activities are one of the best part of conclave and this year is no different. This year’s conclave will feature a wide variety of fun and engaging activities ranging from fun competitions to unique themed activities. There is something for every Arrowmen.
