The 2020 Conclave has been Postponed | Section SR-7B | Order of the Arrow


I hope you and your family are safe and healthy amidst the current COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus) pandemic. This unprecedented situation has affected nearly all aspects of our daily lives and as you may be aware, earlier this week the Order of the Arrow suspended all in-person national, region, and section events until May 2nd.  As a result of this decision and in accordance with guidance from the CDC, the Section SR-7B 2020 Cardinal Conclave will be postponed to the weekend of August 28-30, 2020. The postponed Conclave will still take place at Camp Bowers in White Oak, NC.

We share your disappointment in not having the event as scheduled but see postponing as the best option given current guidance from the Order of the Arrow and the CDC. This decision will allow us to ensure the health and safety of our delegates at Conclave, which is always our top priority, while also providing the fun and fellowship that SR-7B’s Cardinal Conclave is known for.

As for registration for the postponed Conclave, if you are currently registered for Conclave, your registration will transfer to the postponed event and you do not need to take any further action. If you are currently registered for Conclave but unable to attend the postponed date, we will be processing refund requests at We ask that you give us a few days to prepare our website to receive these refund requests. Once the site is prepared and we are actively accepting refund requests, you will be notified as soon as possible. We thank you for your patience as we work through this unprecedented situation. We will not be issuing refunds for memorabilia or the convenience fees associated with paying online. Rather, we will only be issuing refunds for the registration fees of those who can no longer attend Conclave as a result of postponing the event.

Our decision to postpone Conclave will obviously lead to numerous additional questions and we are currently working hard to address these questions in a timely manner. As more information becomes available, we will update you as soon as possible. In the meantime, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.

Finally, please take this time to focus on the wellness of you and your family and remember the spirit of cheerful service as we navigate these difficult times. While I will certainly miss the fun and fellowship of Conclave next month, I look forward to seeing you all when we Soar Higher at Camp Bowers in August!

Yours in Brotherhood,
