WHAT IS WEBELOS WOODS?

Webelos Woods is the first opportunity for 4th grade and 5th grade Webelos Cub Scouts & Arrow of Light Cub Scouts to learn what Boy Scouting is all about. It is a weekend trip that exposes the boys to Boy Scout camping using the Patrol method, in Boy Scout-led outdoor adventure, supervised by adult Boy Scout leaders. The Patrol method is the way Boy Scouts organize that gives them an experience in group living, working and fun – it places responsibility on young shoulders and teaches boys how to accept it. This weekend event gives the Webelos Scouts and Arrow of Light Scouts (AOL) a taste of a little more independence and self-reliance than in Cub Scouts, (this is very attractive to the boys at this age). This program will help the Webelo Scouts to earn their rank and the Arrow of Light rank and will also help them to cross over into a Boy Scout Troop.

Even though it is a Black River event we are opening it up to ALL Districts in Patriots’ Path Council. Even if you are out of council and you would like to attend you are more than welcome to do so.  Click for more information or to register.
