OA Fall Conclave

OA Fall Conclave
Friday, September 11 – Sunday, September 13, 2020
Norseland Scout Camp

The Order of the Arrow is the Brotherhood of Honor within the Boy Scouts of America.  It recognizes those scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives and, by such recognition, causes other scouts to conduct themselves in such a manner as to warrant similar recognition.

The OA staff have worked to ensure the OA Conclave conforms to the CDC guidelines.  We will use Covid-19 practices that will include but not be limited to the following

  • Face masks will be worn by all persons on Norseland Scout Camp property.  Participants should plan to bring at least 1 mask with them (preferably multiple for the weekend).
  • Pre-medical screening will take place once you arrive at camp.  Those with a temperature will be sent home along with all others in your vehicle
    If you have any symptoms prior to conclave, please stay home.
  • All persons on Norseland property will need to sign a Liability Release form.
  • Model Pre-Event Medical Screening Checklist
  • Release of Liability
