This brand new opportunity is for 4th and 5th graders to learn what Scouts BSA is all about, meet other Scouts from 6 districts, do things that Cub Scouts cannot, and have fun. The event is scheduled for Nov 1-3 at Stearns Scout Camp.
Over the weekend, Webelos Scouts will form patrols and be in a troop under the guidance of a Scoutmaster. Led by patrol leaders who are current Scouts in Scouts BSA, Webelos Scouts will get a little taste of the independence and self-reliance they learn in Scouts BSA. They will preview and experience scouting skills, cook, and camp using the patrol method in a Scouts BSA-led outdoor adventure. Webelos Experience in the Woods is an opportunity to earn advancement towards their Webelos rank & Arrow of Light Award, as well as their Trailhead Award.
The weekend activities will include:
- Forming patrols & making patrol flags
- Troop style campfires
- Scout skills rotations
- BB Guns, archery & climbing
- Information for Webelos parents & leaders on the Scouts BSA program
- $30 Webelos Scouts/4th and 5th grade guests
- $20 Parent/Leader
ALL FOOD & EQUIPMENT WILL BE PROVIDED!!!! Tents are available upon request.
