A: At conclave, every Arrowman will be asked to follow the general guidelines set forth by the CDC.

Here are the general guidelines for our event:

  • Personal Protection: Social distancing and facemasks (inside and outside) will be required.
  • Temperature Screening Form: Every person will be asked to provide a completed form. This form is to be completed with your temperature at home and brought to camp where you will be screened again for your current temperature. It can be found here.
  • COVID-19 symptoms: According to the medical form, we ask you to stay home if you are experiencing: shortness of breath, new or worsening dry cough, fever of 100.4 or greater, flu-like symptoms, vomiting, diarrhea, cough, unexplained extreme fatigue or muscle ache, rash, sore throat, and/or open sore.
  • Eating and sleeping: Arrowmen will be divided into groups of 10 that they must stay with when they are sleeping and eating. Each person must sleep alone, or tent with someone from the same household (obeying youth protection guidelines.) Eating will be in various styles including to-go style as well as formal dining with social distancing.

A: Participants will be housed with their lodge in one of the beautiful camp sites at Seven Ranges. You will be required to bring your own tent. Unless you are from the same family, you must bring a tent for just yourself. Adults (21 & over) who need special sleeping accommodations for housing (e.g. CPAP) are to contact the Lodge Adviser for the host Lodge, Toby Hoy via eMail at toby.hoy@bancorp.com at least seven days prior to Conclave to make arrangements.

A: Everyone must bring a current BSA medical form with requisite signatures, a temperature screening form, and a consent form when they check in. If you are not an adult, please make sure to get the required signatures from a parent or guardian. Medical forms can be retrieved at the end of conclave if you are interested. All of these forms are required to be admitted into conclave.
