Event Summary

What is Webelos Woods?

Webelos Woods is an opportunity for our Webelos scouts to learn first hand how the Scouts BSA program operates. Throughout the event Scouts BSA Troops will be hosting stations to show off the skills that they have been working on all year. At each station troops will be providing a teaching demonstration that is applicable to later events that Webelos will attend.


Why is Webelos Woods important?

Studies show that between 4th and 5th grade is often when scouts leave the program, which is also the time they cross-over into the Scouts BSA program. This event seeks to reignite the fire of scouting in the Webelos scouts by showing them what the Scouting program has to offer. Webelos Woods also seeks to kindle the relationship between Webelos, Parents, and Scouts BSA Troops to make the transition from Cub Scouts to Scouts BSA easier.


Are ScoutsBSA Troops invited to Webelos Woods?

Yes! In fact a new component to Webelos Woods is going to be initiated this year. While we have sought Troops to partake and help by hosting an activity station that Bears and Webelos can tackle. This year we are inviting Troops willing to host an activity station to come out to camp and enjoy a weekend camping opportunity at no additional fee. Troops can rent available cabins at standard rates if they choose. Troops are invited to set up model campsites or themed campsites that enhance the event and their activity. There will be a Campsite competition voted on by the Webelos Woods participants. Troops are encouraged to reach out to local Packs with the help of their District Executive and Commissioner and make sure the Bears and Webelos can attend and then stay over Saturday night with the Troop at camp to show them what Scouts BSA camping is like.
