The overall goal of this event is to expose Webelos to Boy Scout activities using the Patrol Method. We do this in a Boy Scout-led outdoor adventure and also place emphasis on what role the parent plays in a Boy Scout Troop environment.
‘A Beginner’s Guide to the Patrol Method’ by Eagle Scout Bryan Wendell is good place to start reading before coming!
We will have a very wide variety of presentations that will encompass many points of the Webelos requirements that count toward Webelos and Arrow of Light rank advancements.
This event begins with check in Friday evening, Camp set up and a leader’s orientation. On Saturday the troops will be ready for an easy rotation where you decide where you go and who you see. This continues throughout the day with breaks for meals and ends with a campfire presentation by the Order of the Arrow after dinner.
Sunday will include a Scout’s Own Interfaith Service before you pack up and head home. Your Pack will need to provide all meals, we will provide the program, a Saturday evening cracker barrel and a patch.
What is Scouts BSA?
For the first time in its 100+ year history, the iconic program of the Boy Scouts of America will be open to young women.
Scouts BSA is a year-round program for boys and girls in fifth grade through high school that provides fun, adventure, learning, challenge, and responsibility to help them become the best version of themselves.
In Scouts BSA, young men and women go places, test themselves, and have one-of-a-kind adventures that can’t be found anywhere else.
