Webelos Woods

Webelos Woods

Webelos Woods is the first opportunity for Webelos Scouts to learn what Scouts, BSA is all about. A weekend camping trip that introduces them to camping using the patrol method, in a Scout-led outdoor adventure, supervised by adult leaders, and with parents nearby.  This weekend event gives the Webelos a little taste of the independence and self-reliance they learn in Scouts, BSA.  Webelos Woods helps to earn their Arrow of Light and will also help them to cross-over to Scouts, BSA.  Don’t miss this great opportunity, register today! Saturday check-in is available.
