Adult Amusements

Check back soon for updated information for the 2024 Conclave. While you wait check out what we offered in 2023 for an idea of what to expect at Conclave!

We heard you clamoring for even more events for adults to participate in.  Adult Amusements activities will be happening at Archaeology Field at Pipsico Scout Reservation. Take a look at these opportunities in between naps and cups of coffee:

Golden Rocking Chair Award: Lodge adults can earn points by participating in adult-oriented  trainings (pages 24-26), placement in Dutch Oven Competition, performance in the Corn Hole Tournament and Blindfolded Walker Race. The lodge with the most points by the end of the program will win this coveted award to be presented Saturday night at FireFest.

Saturday 1:00 – 2:00 pm:  Corn Hole Tournament
Earn points towards the Golden Rocking Chair Award for your lodge as you and a teammate compete in the 5th annual E9 Corn Hole Tournament!

Saturday 2:30 – 4:00 pm: Dutch Oven Cooking Competition 
Use the secret ingredients we’ll provide to create your own Dutch Oven delicacy.

Saturday 1:30 – 2:30 pm: Blindfolded Walker Race
Try to get the fastest time negotiating an obstacle course using your walker … it will be over before you blink!

Saturday 3:00-4:00 pm: National Officer/Director Forum
Talk to OA National Director, Cortland Bolles, along with the National Chief and Eastern Region Chief, to get advice, learn more, or see what the organization is doing now and in the future. 

Chat, Chew, n’ Chug: A crowd favorite, free coffee and
snacks for adults will be available all morning and afternoon at the left side of the Dining Hall. Join us Saturday for fellowship and discussion about Scouting and the OA (points awarded based on the percentage attendance of each lodge’s adult contingent).
