Webelos Woods

The Eagle District Webelos Woods is a camping experience designed to introduce Webelos and their parents to the exciting scouting adventures waiting for them in the Boy Scout program. The weekend is filled with fun activities, intriguing demonstrations, valuable scouting skills, plenty of outdoor excitement and a wonderful campfire.

 

Webelos Woods provides the Webelos and their parents the opportunity to:

  • Learn some basic scouting skills and enjoy the outdoors playing fun games and participating in a jamboree style (multi-unit) campfire.
  • Visit with almost all the Boy Scout troops in the Eagle District area. All troops will be together in one convenient location providing information and sharing fun activities so everyone can get familiar with their programs.
  • Fulfill one of the requirements for the Outdoorsman activity badge or the Arrow of Light by participating in this Boy Scout-oriented outdoor activity.
  • Observe and participate alongside older scouts displaying their scouting skills and working towards their independence.
  • Enjoy great activities and have lots of Fun!

This is a unique opportunity for Webelos and their parents to see what Scouting is all about. While camping alongside the Boy Scouts, Webelos will admiringly see how these older boys positively demonstrate their autonomy by:

  • Setting up their own campsites and working together as patrols
  • Cooking their own patrol meals
  • Cleaning up their area after meals, which means “Wash the dishes”
  • Organizing and run their own games and scouting activities.
  • Planning their own skits, songs and run-ons for the evening campfire
  • Preparing their own Scout Service on Sunday and helping everyone break-down camp following the patrol method.

The Webelos will be embedded with some of these Boy Scout patrols for some of their meals and will get an opportunity to cook their own dinner or breakfast closely supervised by an older Scout. This experience alone makes the weekend worth it as it triggers in the young Webelos a deep feeling of accomplishment and self-reliance.

Webelos Parents will have an opportunity to learn more about the differences between the Cub Scouts and the Boy Scouts programs. Boy Scouts don’t rely on their parents to do things for them. Sure, their leaders & parents help with guidance & instruction when needed, but they don’t do everything for the scouts like most parents did in Cub Scouts.

You’ll find out how Boy Scout troops strive to be “Boy Led”, which means the boys control the meetings, the activities, the planning etc., meeting with their adult leaders to seek logistical support and oversight as needed.

Scouting promises you the great outdoors. As a Scout, you can learn how to camp and hike without leaving a trace and how to take care of the land. You’ll study wildlife up close and learn about nature all around you. There are plenty of skills for you to master, and you can teach others what you have learned.
