Webelos Woods

 

Webelos Woods is an exciting outdoor overnight experience for a Webelos Scout. A variety of games, activities, and outdoor events will take place run by Boy Scout Troops. Webelos Woods is an outdoor activity program designed to aid the Webelos Scout in their transition into Boy Scouts. The purpose of this outdoor experience is to create a genuine desire to know more about Boy Scouting, and through fun events, give them a preview of scout skills and camping.  It will also introduce the Webelos Scouts to the organization and methods of Boy Scouting. 

Webelos Woods offers an opportunity for parents to gain a perspective on how the Scout-led, Adult-guided methods of Boy Scouting are different from the Adult-led Cub Scouting program.
