Mark your calendars for October 28-30, 2016 for Webelos Woods.
WHO: Webelos will be the participants and Boy Scouts will be the leaders/instructors/guides
WHAT: A weekend program that introduces Webelos to Boy Scouting and basic Scouting skills such as fire building, woods tools safety/use, cooking, first aid, etc.
WHEN: October 28-30, 2016
WHERE: We are looking at some local areas including Camp New Hope, Camp Chestnut Ridge, American Legion, and the Occoneechee Speedway
WHY: The purpose of Webelos Woods is twofold:
- It introduces Webelos to the excitement of Boy Scouts and encourages them to continue on in Scouting when they graduate from Cub Scouts
- It give Boy Scout troops an opportunity to connect with those Webelos who will be looking for Boy Scout troops in the near future. This is a great recruiting opportunity.
