Conclave 2015

With 1,239 participants, the 2015 SR-7A Conclave at Bayport Scout Reservation is in the record books as being the biggest Conclave our section has ever held! Our Conclave celebrated the centennial anniversary of the Order of the Arrow and provided brothers with leadership training, fun activities, and fellowship. Most importantly, it welded tightly the links that bind our section in Brotherhood.
