Conclave is a yearly celebration of learning and sharing with each lodge in section E11, but there are unique trainings and activities culminating in amazing shows and a section officer election.

  • Astronaut rescue drop
  • Capsule Emergency Exit
  • Bottle rockets
  • Planetarium
  • Photo Booth
  • Talk by an actual NASA shuttle astronaut

We’re hoping to take a huge contingent, so don’t miss out!  Registration ends 5/20!
