Webelos Woods is a campout designed to introduce 4th and 5th grade Webelos to the many outdoor adventures of Boy Scouting. This awesome weekend event includes patrol-method camping and cooking with a host Boy Scout troop. Webelos Scouts will compete in a variety of competition. The patrols are judged on patrol flag and yell, resources, leadership, teamwork, skill demonstrations, and Scout spirit. The Saturday night campfire will include skits and songs. Parents will learn about transitioning to Boy Scouts and tips on what to help Webelos to look for in a Boy Scout troop. Boy Scouts can workn on the Indian Lore or Basketry Merit Badge.
The registration fee is $10 per participant and includes a patch. Registration is online with credit card, electronic check or PayPal and is typically completed by the unit leader or Webelos den leader. Individual registration (parent and Webelos Scout) are permitted if the unit is not attending. There is no onsite registration. Council refund policy.
Registration opens in January.
